In 2015, the Ozark City Council approved Ordinance 2015-17 requiring water and sewer rates to be reviewed annually and adjusted based on the previous year Consumer Price Index. This ordinance was approved to keep up with the ever-increasing costs to operate and maintain the water and sewer systems. For 2021, water and sewer rates will increase by 2%.
