The Iowa Department of Administrative Services recently set the publication rate for Fiscal Year 2023. Effective July 1, 2022, each line of eight-point type two inches in length, or its equivalent, for the publication in a newspaper of any notice, order, or other required publication is subject to the following rate:
- One insertion = 56.7 cents
- Each subsequent insertion = 38.2 cents
As required by state law, the rate was calculated by applying the consumer price index for all urban consumers as determined by the Department of Labor, which increased 8.3% from April 2021 to April 2022 to the previous rate. Cities are encouraged to review publication rates to ensure all charges are accurate.
