CITY COUNCIL MODIFIES WATER RATES
At a special called meeting on Tuesday, October 22, Johnsonville City Council voted unanimously to modify some aspects of the water rate increase which took effect in July of this year.
Water customers will be billed for the specific amount of water consumed on a monthly basis. The rate structure had been set up to round up to the next 1,000-gallon increment on bills.
Depending on the exact amount used, consumers should see a slight decrease in the total bill amount.
“Council decided to take another look after hearing feedback from customers,” said Johnsonville Mayor Steve Dukes. “We understand that many of our customers live on tight budgets. Although it is not a significant amount, we are happy to make the adjustment to help our citizens,” Dukes concluded.
