Napa City Water Rates Will Likely Increase in 2024

Water customers in the city of Napa will likely pay higher rates starting in 2024.

The city’s utilities department laid out the proposed increases – the first in three years – in a Tuesday presentation to the Napa City Council. Joy Eldredge, the city utilities director, made the case for rate hikes, stating that Napa’s water division will face an annual $6.8 million budget deficit if rates aren’t adjusted.
