On November 2, 2016 the City Commission approved a sewer rate increase. The increase is due to the upgrade at the Waste Water Treatment Plant. The engineers are currently working on the design phase.

The sewer rate will increase effective December 1, 2016. The amount of the increase is based upon the meter size. Most residential homes have a 5/8 meter.
