With little else on the agenda Monday night, the Aberdeen City Council has set aside time for a public hearing and a vote on final adoption of an ordinance that would bring increases and other adjustments to the rates the city charges for the services it provides.
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:
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in Aberdeen City Hall.
