The City of Rock Island is requesting proposals for a comprehensive water/sewer fee and rate study, which will require a qualified consultant or consulting firm. The purpose of the study is to provide sufficient information to support a recommendation to the City Council for adjustments to residential water rates.
The study will also determine an appropriate and adequate rate structure for water and sewer service provided by the City, considering such issues as consumption characteristics of various customer classes, deviation from cost of service principles and fairness and equity implications and customer understanding. The City expects that any rate or fee adjustments developed by the study will be adequate for a minimum of five years, and as many as 20 years.
Firms interested in providing services for this project should submit five (5) copies of your proposal to the Office of the City Engineer, 1309 Mill Street, Rock Island, Illinois 61201, on or before 5:00 p.m., Friday, August 14th.
After reviewing the consultant qualifications and proposal, the selection committee will select one or more firms for an interview.
