N. Augusta council tentatively approves sewer rate increase

  • Follow Latest News

NORTH AUGUSTA – The city council voted unanimously tonight on second reading in favor of an increase in sewer rates.

Residents can expect an increase of about 57 cents a month. The rate increase, which still must have the council's final approval, is needed because Aiken County is charging the city 10 cents more per 1,000 gallons. The county increase will cost North Augusta $147,825.

If passed on final reading the new rate would go into effect July 1.

In other business, Councilman Jimmy Adams was elected to serve a two-year term as mayor pro tempore, and the 2008 National Electric Code was adopted on second reading.

The next city council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. June 15.
