There’s good news for individuals receiving water and sewer services from the City of Greenville.
It was announced at Tuesday’s city council meeting that rates have actually dropped one cent for the first 2,000 gallons used. For those living outside the city limits, the decrease was two cents.
Dave Willey said this is a first since he has been city manager.
Each year on May 1, city utility rates are adjusted by 80 percent of the consumer price index from the previous year. There were no rate changes for use of more than 2,000 gallons of water and sewer.
