A 3.5 percent rate increase for Hagerstown sewer customers was formally approved Tuesday.
City Council members voted 4-0 for the increase, which goes into effect Oct. 1.
The sewer rate increase will accompany a previously approved 3.5 percent water rate increase for city customers.
Both increases were also adopted as part of the city budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
That budget was adopted in May.
