SLIGHT INCREASE SET FOR LOCAL SEWER AND WATER RATES


The city of Port Huron will enter another fiscal year on July 1st, and that day will also see water and sewer rates slightly increased.  The City Council met for a special budget workshop session Wednesday, with Mayor Pauline Repp explaining that residents would see their water bills going up about two dollars a month, with the city also switching over to a monthly billing period instead of the current quarterly tabulations. The Mayor and city officials say the rate increase is needed to pay off the debt incurred by the state-mandated sewer separation work.  The council will vote on approving the $21-million dollar proposal at their next regular session on the 27th.  The council also set a special session for 6:30pm Monday in order to discuss the contract being offered to James Freed to become the next city manager.  He was selected Saturday after a series of candidate interviews.
