Meansville water and garbage rates set to increase

Meansville residents will likely pay a bit more for water and garbage services in the future. City council directed city attorney Tom Morton to write a resolution upping those fees at the meeting Monday, June 8. Council will vote on the measure at a future meeting. Mayor Gayle Burden said the proposed increases are needed to cover rising costs and maintenance. Under the proposed fee hikes, Meansville residents would pay $14 for 2,000 gallons of water. That is a $2 increase. The fee would remain unchanged at $4 per 1,000 gallons for water use above 2,000 gallons. Garbage fees would rise by $1 for people who own or rent a can. Under the proposal, can owners would pay $11 and can renters $12. In other matters, the council accepted the resignation of assistant water superintendent Ronald Mitchell effective June 30.
