Water/Sewer Rates, Fees, and Charges
The Berryville Town Council proposes to amend its Schedule of Water and Sewer Fees and Charges to adjust rates, fees, and related deposits to meet revenue needs identified in a recently completed utility rate study.
The proposed changes to the Schedule are extensive. The highlights of the proposed changes include: adoption of a new monthly administrative fee of $2.50 for water service and $2.50 for sewer service, a 25 cent reduction in water user fee rate and a 27 cent increase in the sewer user fee rate, and an $8,250 increase in the water availability fee (5/8” meter) and an $8,250 decrease in the associated sewer availability fee.
If the new Schedule is adopted, then it is expected to become effective on November 22, 2019.
