OLIVER SPRINGS WATER BOARD PASSES WATER AND SEWER BILL INCREASE

Oliver Springs Water customers can expect to see a sizable increase in their August water and sewer bill. Thursday night, the Oliver Springs Water Board voted for an increase of 25 to 30 percent based on usage. City Mayor Cecil Crowe reported that the city has to come up with an additional $175,000 a year to pay their part in a sewer re-hab loan that was taken out last year to fix the aging sewer plant. Customers who use less than 2000 gallons a month won’t see much of an increase but the ones who use more will. Some comparative figures given by the board was that a $22 monthly bill would go up to $28. A bill of $50 a month would increase to about $66.

    We already pay a ridiculous water and sewer bill and on our street the water main is leaking everywhere. If the county would pay the money to hire an expert engineer that knows water and sewer they wouldn’t continue to dig up these lines make repairs that doesn’t work
