County residents will soon pay more for sewer services.
Oldham County Fiscal Court April 16 approved a request from the Oldham County Environmental Authority to increase sewer rates for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
Magistrates voted 8-1 in favor of a 3 percent increase and a $2.15 bump in OCEA’s compliance surcharge.
The rate and surcharge hikes kick in July 1.
Based on an average monthly water usage of 5,500 gallons, customers will see an approximate $3.50 monthly increase in sewer service fees.
