ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Spire customers should see changes to their bills after two recent announcements.
Earlier in the week, the utility said an infrastructure system replacement surcharge raise would be effective on November 16. Residential customers would then see an increase of 57 cents a month.
The affected customers live in St. Louis City, St. Louis, St. Charles, Butler, Iron, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, Crawford, St. Francois and Ste. Genevieve Counties.
After News 4's initial report, Spire said the Missouri Public Service Commission had approved their request to decrease the cost of gas for all Spire customers in Missouri. The utility company said the combination of the infrastructure surcharge and the lower gas rate will mean a reduction in bills.
According to Spire, the average residential customer in eastern Missouri will see their bill lowered by almost 4.5 percent during the winter month.
