$1,000 increase approved for water, sewer hookup

November 16, 1994

The Taneytown City Council approved a $1,000 increase in the one-time fee charged to hook new homes up to the city's water and sewer services Monday night.

Combined with current hookup fees of $1,200 and $4,000 in additional benefit assessment -- or impact -- fees, one-time charges for new homes built in the city will total $6,700.

More than 1,100 new homes are in the planning or conceptual stages, city officials have said.

The new fees are intended to help the city grapple with the costs of growth over the next several years, including a possible enlargement of the city's sewage treatment plant.
