Baker City residents could face a number of fee hikes in the upcoming year, and many of the price boosts are tied to the annual consumer price index and the city's fixed debt obligations.

City officials will ask the City Council to approve the full slate of fee increases at its next meeting, April 22.

Officials are recommending price increases in ambulance base rate charges, cemetery, building department and wastewater fees along with a boost in water mainline charges.

Modest price hikes on city fees are common, Finance Director Jeanie Dexter said.

"We set these (fees) every year. Every year some fees change," Dexter said.
