Aldermen set new water, sewer rates; hearing planned

The Board of Aldermen formalized an increase to Town water and sewer rates with an unanimous vote for an ordinance outlining fees at their March 17 meeting. Homeowners inside the corporate limits and one mile outside the corporate limits will see the changes on their May bill. Changes to rates for town customers over a mile outside the corporate limits have been sent to the Public Service Commission for review. A public hearing on the changes will be held April 7 at Town Hall at 5:30 p.m. A legal notice outlining the new rates will run in the April 3 issue of this newspaper.

Prior to approving the ordinance, aldermen heard from a citizen and received reports from department heads.
