Greenville officials looking to increase town water rate

Dec 23, 2022 12:45 am

Melanie Lekocevic is reporting for Capital Region Independent Media the Greenville Town Board on January 16, 2023, will conduct a hearing to hear public opinion on a proposed increase in the town water rate. Water customers currently pay $56.20 a quarter for up to 10,000 gallons or $5.62 for every 1,000 gallons. If the proposed rate hike is approved, the rate would increase to $6.50 for every 1,000 gallons, or $65 each quarter. Water bills are sent out at mid-month in January, April, July and October. The new rate, if approved, would likely be implemented with the April bill. This is the first time water rates have gone up since 2007, Town Supervisor Paul Macko said on December 19. “The town water rates haven’t changed in 15 years,” Macko said. “Anybody that is running a household knows how much electric has gone up for residential and it has gone up equally, or even more, for commercial users.” The cost of both utilities and supplies to operate the plant have increased, he said. The price of chlorine has risen by about 80 percent, as well. The public hearing will be at 6:30 p.m. on January 16, prior to the town board's regular meeting.
