People in Des Moines will see their utility bills go up one week from today.
On Tuesday, the Des Moines franchise fee will increase from 5-percent to 7.5-percent.
Voters approved the increase in March. The money will be used to repay $40-million in bonds the city used to pay a settlement over franchise fees.
The Iowa Supreme Court ruled a portion of the franchise fee charged from 2004 to 2009 was an illegal tax.
The increase is set to last for seven years.
