Trash, water and sewer fees up for discussion at Lawrence City Commission budget study session

June 21, 2011


Increases to the city’s trash, water and sewer fees will be up for discussion at a City Commission budget study session Tuesday.

City Manager David Corliss will recommend that average residential water and sewer bills increase by a total of 3.7 percent for 2012. He’s recommending that trash rates increase by 2.7 percent — or an extra 39 cents per month.

The dollar amount for the water and sewer rate increase will vary depending on how much water a household uses. But the city estimates an average user of water will see an increase of $1.40 per month.

At the study session, commissioners will not take any final action on the rate increases. Commissioners will approve the increases as part of the overall 2012 budget, which will be finalized in August.

Also up for discussion is a property tax mill levy increase.

The study session will be at 4 p.m. today at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St.
