WESTMORLAND — This city might have to raise water and wastewater rates in response to a recent survey conducted regarding the new municipal plants being built.
During the council meeting starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, city consultant Joel Hamby will give the council his recommendations on the potential rate increase.
Mayor Henry Halcon said the federal grants allotted to the city to build the water and wastewater plants required that a survey be done. The survey suggested a raise in rates might be needed.
Halcon said Hamby will give his recommendation on whether to raise rates or cut spending on certain items at the plant.
