WENATCHEE — Sewer utility customers who live outside city limits will no longer pay more than customers who live within the city after a unanimous Wenatchee City Council vote Thursday night.

Since 1954, Wenatchee charged customers outside city limits 150% of the rate it charged customers within the city. Starting Aug. 27, to “provide utility rate equity within customer classifications,” all sewer utility customers will pay the same rate.
