From The Mountain Mail:
The $39 quarterly charge will increase $2 per month to $45; the base fee for water use will increase from 85 cents to $1 per 1,000 gallons used. Additional living units will pay about 75 percent of the normal residential rate, or about $33.75 per quarter, up from the current $10 charge. Commercial and industrial customers will pay more, based upon the size of their water service line. Sewer only customers will pay more too based upon their residency. By approving the ordinance Tuesday, council members set in motion an annual 5 percent increase.
