County OKs sewer rate reduction
Moseley Conducts First Fiscal Court Meeting
The Mercer County Fiscal Court gave first reading to an ordinance amendment that would lower sewer bills across the county.
At their regular meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 30, the fiscal court gave first reading to an amendment that would lower sewer bills for customers of the Mercer County Sanitation District who use less than 2,000 gallons. It would reduce bills by $8, from $40 to $32 a month.
While some Burgin residents have been complaining about the monthly minimum bill since the sewer system’s construction, the rate reduction would apply to all of the sanitation district’s customers, not just Burgin. The change to the minimum bill will impact 39 percent of the sanitation district’s customer base, according to figures provided by the district.
