WATER RATES FOR OTHER COUNTIES
Miami: County Engineer Paul Huelskamp said the county is in the process of a water and sewer rate study, and rates will probably go up in 2014, but not on Jan. 1. Miami County serves most residents outside the cities of Troy, Piqua and Tipp City.
Greene: Ron Volkerding, county director of sanitary engineering, said a recommendation has been made to raise county water rates by 2 percent in 2014, while holding sewer rates flat. He said county commissioners plan to invite public comments at their evening meeting Jan. 7. Greene County provides water and sewer service to Beavercreek, Cedarville and all townships, plus sewer service to Bellbrook and Spring Valley.
Warren: Patty Solinsky, county water/sewer business manager, said water and sewer rates will rise 3 percent for county customers, reflected on each customer’s first billing cycle that falls completely within 2014. Most cities provide their own water service, but several smaller cities use county sewer service.
