Council to discuss water rate Monday

Plans to increase the city’s water rate by 18 percent ground to a halt Tuesday evening—at least for this week. The city council decided to offer more time for public input into the issue, which it will take up for discussion once again Monday evening when it meets for a regular session at 6 p.m. in the city council chambers.

The hike in the water portion of the local utility bill is designed to help cover expense of debt repayment on the water treatment plant, constructed in 2008.

City calls special meeting for emergency water rate increase

 

The city council was scheduled to meet in a special session Tuesday at 5 p.m. to consider a resolution to increase local water rates by 18 percent. The move was prompted to allow the city to continue to meet bond debt service requirements on its water treatment plant.

 

The issuance of the bond dates back several years, when the city was forced to approve construction of the plant to reduce the amount of arsenic in the local water supply. That move came after the state and federal governments radically reduced the acceptable level of arsenic allowed in municipal drinking water.
