WEST POINT — The City of West Point has increased rates for water and sewer service to pay for repairs, added operating costs and other expenses.
The Daily Times Leader reports that the mayor and board of selectmen approved the higher rates this week.
Residential customers inside the city limits will see bills raise from $16 to $23 for their first 2,000 gallons of water per month and from $2.70 to $3.20 for every 1,000 gallons used thereafter. Businesses and residents outside the city also will pay more.
Current residential sewer rates would raise from $15 to $17 for the first 2,000 gallons, and from $1.70 to $3 for every additional 1,000 gallons. Businesses inside and outside the city also will pay more.
