April hearing expected on water rate increase

The Board of Estimates is expected today to call a public hearing on plans to raise water and sewer rates by 9 percent.

The rate increase would be the first of three annual 9 percent increases planned to cover the cost of complying with the federal Clean Water Act and upgrading security at water plants.

The public hearing would take place in April and the higher rates would take effect that month if the board approves them. The rate increase would raise water bills for the average family of four by $50 a year, city officials said.
