Equalized storm water fees, sewer assessments in affect

The equalization of sewer surcharges and storm water fees among city dwellers was adopted in July by the Mount Vernon City Council and will go into effect with the bills being mailed this week.

The change in billing is expected to add about $1,800 a month to the city’s coffers. For the rest of this story, see the August 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
