Dothan Utilities Proposed Rate Increase and 
Ordinance Modifications

The City of Dothan will conduct a public hearing on Thursday, July 30, 2015 to discuss the proposed changes to the Dothan Utilities Code of Ordinances. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm at the Dothan Opera House.

During the meeting, representatives of Dothan Utilities will provide an overview of how the proposed rate increases and code modifications will address the following:

• Electric and wastewater charges

• Customer deposits and fees

• Provide additional benefits to the Dothan Utilities Customers

• Make into law the operating policies that are currently in place

• Clean-up the current code by clarifying and updating terms (capitalization, wording, etc.)

With the proposed electric rate increase, the twelve month average increase to a residential customer’s bill will be approximately $1.31 based upon 1,479 kWh usage (average residential power usage). For wastewater, the proposal is for an annual increase of $0.75 to the existing sewer rate per 1,000 gallons of metered water over the next three years. Therefore, a customer using 6,000 gallons of water each month, will see an increase in their monthly sewer bill of $4.50. For example, where the sewer portion of 6,000 gallon bill is currently $29.64, there

will be an increase to $34.14 in October 2015. In October of 2016, that same bill will become $38.64, and in October 2017, $43.14.

In order to ensure that citizens fully understand the proposed changes, the City of Dothan is providing the 
following pdf documents:

• Overview of Dothan Utilities Rate Changes

• Ordinance with Proposed Changes (35 pages)

• Summary of the Proposed Ordinance Changes (3 pages)

• PowerPoint of the Electric Cost of Service and Rate Design Study

• Sewer Cost Comparison Graph
