Sewer rate increase; Residents likely to see bills go up

“We’re looking into being able to buy some meters in bulk so that we can get a group discount,” Lounsbury said. “We are really trying to do what’s best for all aspects of the population, and make sure that whatever you pay in the sewer is what you use.”

During her motion to vote in approval of the new sewer rates, Lounsbury proposed an appeals process for ratepayers eligible for financial assistance through Southington Community Services.

“I’m going to propose a motion that we cast the sewer rate increases with one addition—that we set up an appeals process through Community Services for hardship cases,” Lounsbury said. “I think there were some significant reasons that there may be some seniors and there may be some people undergoing significant hardship.”
