After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Colorado Springs Utilities customers will have to pay a little more if an overall rate increase gets the okay from the City Council.
CSU is making the rate adjustment, in part, to help pay for new street lights. That means a new fee of $1.79 on your bill for a street light service charge.
Wastewater rates would also increase, but electricity would drop slightly. And water rates would change depending on the season.
Overall, your average utility bill would go up about $4.70 a month. That's slightly lower than CSU initially discussed.
The utility company also wants to start charging late fees for people who don't pay their bills on time.
The council will vote on the proposal in January.
