Mount Airy OKs increase in fees for water, sewer

April 06, 1993

The Mount Airy Town Council last night increased annual water and sewer fees by $12 to cover the cost of federally mandated toxicity tests.

The four council members present all voted for the measure. Councilman David W. Pyatt was absent. The council approved the increases as emergency measures.

"We need to generate $22,000 to cover the cost of these tests," said Council President R. Delaine Hobbs. "This [increase] should generate the funds necessary to keep the budget in line."

With the increase, each household in the town will pay $2 more per quarter for sewer service and $1 more per quarter for water, Mr. Hobbs said.

The increases will take effect on July 1.
