CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – Customers may soon see higher bills from Clarksville Gas & Water, under a proposed rate increase needed to pay for the city’s second water treatment plant and other key projects.
Clarksville Gas & Water Director Mark Riggins joined City Council members at their Thursday executive session to present the increase.
Riggins told council members the increase has been planned for a long time as “imminent,” but he recognized that the timing is difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This rate increase has been in the works for years. It was planned to come now even before COVID happened,” Riggins said.
