City considers fee increases for utility services


Follow The Republic:


Columbus water and sewer officials are proposing substantial fee increases for various utility services.

The fees for most of those services, which include returned checks, winter disconnects and meter installations, haven’t been adjusted in about 20 years, utilities director Keith Reeves told city council members Tuesday night.

Because those rates have not increased over the years, what the city charges does not match the actual cost of the work, Reeves said.

Utility Service Board members have been talking for the last few months about how to remedy that, he said.
