Edwardsville approves sewer rate increases
Edwardsville City Council members followed through Monday with their 2010 budget plans to increase sewer rates for all customers.
For those in the residential rate class, rates will be going up $.70 from $6.25 to $6.95 per month.
“This is just an update in accordance with budget we already adopted,” said city administrator Michael Webb.
The overall revenue that is expected from sewers in 2010 is about $76,000, which is in a separate fund to be used for sewer maintenance expenses and debt service.
The increase is 11.2 percent across the board, which in addition to the residential district includes four commercial classes.
