Town to increase tapping fee for water
BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Town Council voted Monday to increase its tapping fee for some future property owners.
Prior to its 7 p.m. council meeting, the council held a 6:30 p.m. public hearing on the resolution to increase the rates.
However, nobody spoke at the public hearing.
The resolution was introduced at the council's Feb. 3 meeting.
The fee is charged when the town connects a property to the town's water system, Town Manager John Kendall said.
The town is proposing increasing the tapping fee for townhouses from $3,750 to $5,000, he said.
The change was effective upon its passage Monday night.
