Mount Pulaski explains sewer charge increase

Send a link to a friend

[February 18, 2010]  MOUNT PULASKI -- At its November meeting, the Mount Pulaski City Council voted to add a $4 sewer surcharge to the monthly water and sewer bills to generate funds to repay a loan the city is taking out.

With the loan, the city plans to replace the existing lift station on Elkhart Road and replace the sewer force main directly south of Elkhart Road, approximately 1 mile in length, running parallel to the railroad tracks and connecting an existing lift station located at the city's street department on Spring Street.

This sewer surcharge will be added to the bills beginning in February and will be a monthly surcharge of $4 to those who are already charged for sewer. Those living outside the city limits and those who don't normally pay sewer won't be billed for this surcharge.

Hopefully this will explain the addition to the bills and alleviate the call volume to City Hall.
