As an offered benefit, city employees who own their home and reside in that home will now have the base rates for their water, sewer and garbage paid.
The base rate is $87 monthly, and while Baker residents generally have 2,000 gallons of water included in their base rate, the city employees who receive this benefit will not.
This benefit is only for permanent full and part time city employees who own their home and reside in it. Elected officials are not eligible to receive this benefit.
