MORRIS – On Tuesday, the Morris City Council voted to hire engineering firm Bolton and Menk to complete a rate study for the city’s water utility.


City Manager Blaine Hill said utility rate studies are not uncommon for cities to complete. In this case, the city needs the study in order to set a new “conservation rate” for the water utility based on new state and federal guidelines.
