DNR Rules Prompt WB to Hike Sewer Rates

Nothing’s official yet, but it appears likely that West Burlington will soon be raising its sewer rates.


Facing the prospect of new legal mandates from the state Department of Natural Resources, the West Burlington City Council held a work session this week and tentatively agreed to raise the $4 rate to $4.68-per-month…and the $4.07 rate to $5.11-a-month.


The Council won’t take a formal vote until its next meeting, this coming Wednesday.
