The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday night on an ordinance amending and revising certain utility fees, rates and charges. The public hearing will begin at 8 o’clock in the colonial courthouse. The board’s regular meeting will begin at 7.
The proposed rate increases, which come as a recommendation from a study the county had conducted recently in order to help make its utilities system become more self-sufficient, mainly impact the monthly sewer service rates. Under the proposal, the monthly nonuser service charge would increase from $11.17 to $11.50, with the next 2,000 per 1,000 gallons increasing from $4.92 to $5.07.
Monthly rates for water service would increase from $20.18 to $20.79, with the next 6,000 gallons per 1,000 gallons to increase from $10 to $10.30. The monthly nonuser service charge would increase from $20.18 to $20.79 under the proposal.
If approved, the rate changes would become effective July 1.
