Williamsport council eyes utility fee hike
WILLIAMSPORT — The town of Williamsport is considering increasing its utility connection fees.
The town’s planning and zoning commission recommended the increases. In a letter to the mayor and council, the commission said the town’s current utility connection fee of $1,000 “does not reflect present costs.”
The commission also decided the town should have different fees for residential and commercial connections.
The commission recommended as fees:
- For residential connections: $3,200 for water and $3,400 for sewer.
- For commercial connections: $4,000 for water and $4,000 for sewer.
The mayor and town council will hold a public hearing on the proposed increases Sept. 10 at 6:45 p.m. at Williamsport Town Hall.
