This year the City of Everman conducted a regional survey of water rates. This survey compared like-size cities rates and considered general maintenance and planned improvement costs. The new water rates become effective June Billing. Residential, Commercial and Senior residents will see a 5%  increase in their water bills as a result of this change.
