The Board of Public Works will consider approval of the 2013 budget at its meeting Thursday.
The budget, discussed at a two-day work session last week, includes increases in customer rates for water and sanitary sewer.
Public hearings will be held on the budget and approval of budget items will be recommended to the Hastings City Council for its approval.
Up for consideration is an ordinance increasing water rates from $11.16 for six units of water to $12.29 for six units of water — a 10 percent increase.
A unit of water is 100 cubic feet, or 748 gallons of water.
HU manager Marv Schultes said six units of water is the typical amount of water a customer uses during the winter months.
