LIBERTY CENTER COUNCIL APPROVES WATER AND SEWER RATE HIKES

 

Look for increases in water and sewer rates coming soon to the village of Liberty Center.      Village Council approved the third and final readings for hikes in the base rate of water, from $24.35 to $26.45; and base rate on sewer bills will climb from $11.49 to $14.25.

Liberty Center council learned they will receive a grant of $40,000 from the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation, to help pay for 350 new water meters for the community.  The village will put-up the remaining $58,000 for the project.   And those new meters should last anywhere from 20 to 25 years.

Mayor Max Fetterman reported to council, that the Henry County Regional Water and Sewer district would be responsible for funding of Napoleon’s new water treatment plant, with the city of Napoleon running the daily operation.                And Liberty Center Council was informed that Sydney Davis would be helping with duties at the park for the recreation department.
