New Wastewater Treatment Plant Construction Fee

Money folder

The City began construction of a new $24M wastewater treatment plant last year. This facility will allow the City to treat its own wastewater, whereas now nearly half of all wastewater generated in the City is sent to Columbia and Richmond Counties for treatment. This is a critically important capital improvement for our City as the new plant will have the capability to accommodate growth over the next 20-30 years.

When the treatment plant is completed (2019) the City will need to begin repayment of the loan principal, which unfortunately will require increasing the New Wastewater Treatment Plant Construction Fee that is currently $5 per month per account.  To meet loan requirements we will follow the following fee schedule.
1. Present day thru Jun 30, 2018 -- $5 per month per account
2. July 1, 2018 thru December 31, 2018 -- $10 per month per account
3. January 1, 2019 thru August 31, 2019 -- $15 per month per account
4. September 1, 2019 onwards -- $20 per month per account
