Brusly council considers sewer fee increase

Brusly Mayor Joey Normand has asked the Town Council to consider implementing a user rate increase for the residential sewer fee.

Normand says the town needs between $210,000 to $240,000 annually over the next couple of years to properly maintain its sewer system and keep the operating fund from sinking into a deficit.

The Advocate reports the mayor's proposal includes monthly flat fee increases of $1, $2 and $3 and a 5 percent annual increase.

Brusly residents pay $18 a month for sewer service. The sewer rate has not been increased since 2003, when the rate jumped $5 a month with council approval.

The newspaper reports the council most likely will introduce the ordinance for the sewer fee increase during its regular meeting next week.
