City Council Approves Reading of Sewer Hikes

May 22nd, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Cumberland’s mayor and City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance Tuesday that will increase sewer bills 20 percent for residents beginning in fiscal year 2014. The proposal has been discussed during a number of work sessions that have focused on  the  city’s proposed $36 million budget.  City Administrator Jeff Rhodes presented the plan to negate a projected $1.1 million deficit in the sewer fund with the rate increase, which would add about $7 to a resident’s monthly bill. According to budget figures disclosed, the average sewer bill, which is about $35 currently, will rise to about $42. Mayor Brian Grim.
