The Rockville Town Council met August 10 for a public hearing on proposed sewer and water rate increases. There were no members of the public in attendance for the meeting, and following a brief overview of the rate increases, they were adopted as presented. The current minimum rate for water per month is $20.81, with the adopted increase, the new minimum for water is $22.80 per month; likewise, the current minimum monthly amount for sewer is $41.62. That rate will increase to $49.28 per month once the new ordinance goes into effect. These rates should be guaranteed for five years. The rate increases will take effect in October, and customers will begin seeing them on the bill they receive in November.
In addition to the public hearing, the Council met with Ken Olsen from American Structurepoint, Inc. via Zoom Software to discuss any possible discrepancies between the upcoming Townhomes on Main and Market Street projects. Olson requested more finalized design data from the Townhomes project before he could be certain that changes would need to be made, but reassured the Council that they have time to make necessary changes to the Market Street design once they can look over the final design for the Townhomes project.
