Sewer rates may increase
By SCOTT BUTKI
Water rates in Washington County will not increase for the second consecutive year under a proposal by county Water and Sewer Director Greg Murray.
Under the proposal, however, sewer customers would face a 2 percent rate increase when the next fiscal year begins July 1.
That increase would raise the average residential sewer customer's bill by 60 cents a month, Murray said.
Murray outlined his proposal during a Tuesday meeting of the Washington County Commissioners, who took no action. A public hearing on the proposed rate increase will be held but a hearing date has not been set.
