Applications for 2018 funds are due by October 13.

The public is invited to a historic ground breaking celebration for the new Richland City Hall as a component of the City’s Swift Corridor initiative.

On Tuesday, September 19, the Richland City Council will consider new electric rates during a public hearing presented by Richland Energy Services. The proposed 6.5% increase would become effective January 2018 and is necessary primarily due to Bonneville Power Administration’s wholesale power increase effective October 1, 2017. Even with the increase, Richland Energy Services’ rates will remain very competitive compared to other regional utilities.
