Utility Rate Information:
Dear Customer:

The City of Port St. Joe recently completed a Utility Rate Study. The study recommendation is a 2% per year increase for years 1-5 and a 3% per year increase for years 6 -10. For the average consumer, 2% is equivalent to approximately $2 per month. Please note that the City of Port St. Joe has kept the same property tax millage rate of 3.5914 for more than 12 years.

The driving factors for rates moving forward are Capital Projects such as Long Avenue, the Downtown Commercial District, and the total number of customers served. Several hundred customers were lost after Hurricane Michael, but recovery efforts, along with a strong economy, have restored our customer base.

The future for Port St. Joe is looking bright considering the adversity our little town has faced. We anticipate only minimal increases to come.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
The City of Port St. Joe
