Chester: Flat Fee System For Sewer Rate

Chester is moving forward with a flat fee as a universal sewer rate. The municipality agreed to charge a fee based on property assessment. Currently, five out of six sewer systems are in a deficit. Warden Allen Webber says the goal of using a flat fee is to reduce the deficit over five years. It was a 4-3 vote among councillors. Webber says its been a hot topic.

The public will get a chance to voice their opinion on the changes on April 24.
