BRAWLEY — An increase in fees for in city sewer service, upgrading of city transportation services and a proposed bicycle and pedestrian path all saw council action at last night's City Council meeting here.
A 25 percent hike in city sewer service rates was approved during a second reading, meaning the ordinance that will raise rates was adopted.
The rate increase will go into effect Aug. 17 with a first billing date of Sept. 1.
The city's dial-a-ride service, contracted to Sunrise Driving Service, received funding not to exceed $20,000 for the purchase of a vehicle equipped for disabled riders.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the service must offer a vehicle equipped with a ramp to accommodate disabled patrons.
The council reviewed plans for a proposed bicycle and pedestrian path from Cattle Call Park to Pat Williams Park.
In May the city approved a contract with Dokken Engineering, of San Diego to design the pedestrian and bicycle path.
