Current Utility Rates, Billing, and Service Information

Utility Information and Rates
Utility rates and charges are evaluated yearly and updated annually per City Commission adoption. On July 16th the City Commission will discuss these increases, and on August 6th, the City Commission will vote on increases in solid waste, stormwater and wastewater fees which will be effective October 1, 2024.

Utility fees support the City of Largo’s continued efforts to increase the capacity and reliability of sanitation, water resources, and stormwater utilities. Fees also support the operations, maintenance, and infrastructure of those utilities. The City of Largo is currently working on a multi-year capital improvement plan and continues to sustain vital aging public infrastructure.

The Solid Waste increase will provide funding for vehicles, as well as increases in both normal recurring costs and tipping fees.

The Stormwater increase will provide flood control and water quality benefits as a proactive measure towards the City of Largo's deteriorating stormwater infrastructure.  

The Wastewater increase will provide rehabilitation to the City's basin collection system, to prevent overflows during heavy storms, as well as ensure that our aging wastewater infrastructure remains in regulatory compliance.
