City considers increasing water and sewer fee schedule


Follow The Republic:


Columbus water and sewer officials are proposing substantial increases in fees for various one-time services.

The fees for most of those services, which include after-hours non-emergency work, winter disconnects and meter installations, haven't been been adjusted in about 20 years, utilities director Keith Reeves told city council members Tuesday night.

The proposal includes charges for a returned payment increasing from $20 to $40 and that the charge for the installation of a new meter pit increase from $218 to $1,100.

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

City councilmen are considering the new fees, but took no action on the proposal Tuesday night.
