You could be seeing your utility bill getting a little more expensive.
Tuesday night the Topeka city council approved a measure that would increase the fee it charges Westar Energy by one percent.
That raises the cost from 5 percent to 6 percent the city charges the company to use its right of way.
That increase is expected to be passed on to you – the rate payer.
The governing body passed the proposal on a 7 to 2 vote.
The increase will bring the city an estimated 600-thousand dollars a year in additional revenue.
