Steep Sewer Tax Increase a Going Concern

Chicot Memorial

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — As expected, the City of Greenville has approved a steep hike in residents sewer bills starting this fall. Ballooning costs of a federally mandated sewer system repair that have gone from an initial $20 million to potentially as much as $65 million have forced the city to raise water rates each of the last three years. With no more room to raise those rates yet again, the city council has turned to taxing water on the way out – sewer rates. Beginning October 1st the minimum monthly sewer bill will rise from $11.41 to $15.06, an increase of 32 percent.
