The Franklin Municipal Water Utility has filed an application to increase water rates by 3.2 percent.
If the new rate goes through as expected on Sept. 2, the average residential customer with a quarterly usage of 12,000 gallons of water will rise from the current $64.14 to $66.21.
The application to the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin was made "to reduce the existing deficiency in present rates."
The utility noted that the rate-change request is being made under Wisconsin Statute 196.193. Rates granted under the statute do not require a public hearing.
Water rates come under five different customer classifications including average and large residential, commercial, public authority and industrial.
