Email News Alerts

Nevis residents will likely see a bump in the water and sewer rates.

CPA Donald Zierke arrived at Monday's meeting to present the annual audit report, echoing a recommendation heard in prior years; raise rates.


The water fund saw a $26,626 operating loss in 2008 and the sewer fund had a loss of $40,795.

Although a "decent amount" still exists in the funds, he reminded the council grants for improvement and replacement no longer exist.
