The board of commissioners voted unanimously Aug. 15 to increase rates for water and sewer services.
The commission’s auditors determined that operating costs have risen significantly and that a rate adjustment is necessary to offset rising costs.
The first 2,000 gallons of water will cost $13, up from $12.50. Every 1,000 gallons after that will be $3 an increase from $3.50
In sewer fees, the first 2,000 will be $13, and every 1,000 additional gallons will be $3, both up 50 cents as well.
The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1.
