Aberdeen is adjusting the rates it charges for the services it provides – everything from $10,500 for a new water connection to $1 for bicycle registration – and will lay out its proposed slate of fees in an ordinance to be introduced during Monday night’s city council meeting.
The proposed schedule of fees includes a water use rate of $14.50 for the first 3,500 gallons or less and $4.38 per each additional 1,000 gallons; a sanitary sewer use rate of $13.65 for the first 3,500 gallons or less of metered water and $3.90 per each additional 1,000 gallons of metered water; with nonresident water and sewer user rates being set at 150% of the prevailing use.
Water area connection charges are assessed on all new development and redevelopment. A single family dwelling is considered one Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) and will be assessed a fee of $10,500. Sanitary sewer area connection charges are also assessed on all new development and redevelopment and will be assessed at $5,400. An EDU is determined to be 250 gallons of water per day.
The full text of the ordinance and schedule of rates and charges is listed below:
Also on the agenda Monday night are proclamations for American Diabetes Week and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County, a Clean Energy Grant presentation, and a capital budget amendment from the Director of Public Works.
