Culver Town Council Discusses Raising Water, Sewer Rates


The Culver Town Council members discussed raising the water and sewer rates to cover operating and maintenance costs.

Culver officials told WKVI News that the water rate has not been raised in several years as is the case with the sewer rate.

The 50-year-old wastewater plant is in need of some rehabilitation. The town is working on getting an OCRA grant to help the process.

Upon final approval, the water rates will raise 20 percent in January and another 20 percent in June of 2015. The sewer rate will raise six percent in January. The increase will vary depending on the user.
