Natural gas customers of Ameren Missouri soon will see their rates go up, but not by much.
The monthly bill for a typical residential customer is projected to rise by about $3.30 under a plan approved by state regulators.
The increase will take effect Feb. 1.
The Missouri Public Service Commission said Thursday the rate agreement will generate about $5.6 million annually for Ameren Missouri. The company had requested an $11.9 million rate increase.
University of Missouri leaders met by teleconference today to discuss tuition and fee increases across the four-campus system.
Curators looked at figures and possible scenarios prepared by the UM vice president Nikke Krawitz.
A 10 percent increase in tuition - the highest increase scenario on the table - would contribute about $44 million to the coffers.
That doesn't even come close, Krawitz says, to meeting an estimated $64 million gap.
But what's the bottom line for Krawitz?
