Taxpayers could pick up tab on new sewer line
By STEVEN T. DENNIS
Washington County taxpayers might be asked to shoulder an additional $1.12 million for sewer service in two years to pay for a new sewer line.
Taxpayers, who are already pumping $3.5 million a year into the county's Water and Sewer Department to hold rates down, could be asked to pay for the extension of a sewer line on Hopewell Road to the Cedar Lawn development.
The plan to have taxpayers pick up the tab was recommended by the Water and Sewer Advisory Commission in a meeting Thursday with the Washington County Commissioners, who have yet to endorse the plan.
