Brownton Council bumps up sanitary sewer rate

The Brownton City Council approved a $1 increase per 1,000 gallons for its sewer utility at its Tuesday, Nov. 1, meeting.
The new usage rate will be $9 per 1,000 gallons, up from the previous rate of $8 per 1,000 gallons.
City Clerk Ella Kruse said that had not it been for some unexpected repair bills — $21,000 worth — the sanitary sewer fund would have shown a net profit of $9,600 in 2016.
The water fund, in comparison, showed a gain of $55,900 so far in 2016.
The profits in those funds are set aside for future improvements to the sanitary and water systems.
