Posted in News http://blogs.phillyburbs.com/news/bct/category/news/> on November 18th, 2008 at 4:13 pm by BCT staff writer Dave Maccar | The Edgewater Park Township Sewerage Authority is considering raising its sewage rates for residents and businesses.
The proposed increase would raise flat fees for residents by $40 to $240 per year and would change the billing cycle to quarterly payments of $60 rather than the current semi-annual payments.. Billing dates would be in December, March, June and September.
For commercial accounts, a flat rate of $70 has been proposed with a cost of $4 per gallon over 12,000 gallons. This is an increase from the current annual minimum payment of $52.50 and a cost of $2.55 per gallon over 13,000 gallons..
The current rates have been in place since 1995.
The Authority will hold a public hearing on Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Edgewater Park Township Municipal Building to discuss the proposed rate changes.

I guess the Sewer Authority Chairman Lied (check his comments in the Beverly Bee this summer) about how the Sewer Authorities Spending and Lack of Fiscal Control wasn't going to result in higher Sewer Taxes and the sewer rates were last raised in 2002 not 1995 as the article states. It is bad when the Authority lies to the BCT about when the rate was last raised. Why would you lie about this?
