Start Date: 10/10/2018 -  
The Ridgway town council approved an ordinance increasing water rates effective Dec. 1. The monthly base water allotment for residents will decrease from 9,000 gallons per month to 7,000 gallons monthly with a base cost of $42 per month. The following December, the monthly allotment will fall to 6,000 gallons per month, but the monthly rate will remain unchanged. Additional changes will also be made so that the water district is no longer subsidizing water delivery. Ouray County Plaindealer (Ridgway, Colo.), Oct. 17, 2018
