TF City Council Looks At Fee Hikes
This evening the Twin Falls City Council will hear from city residents regarding a proposed rate increase for water and sanitation. City officials are forecasting a shortfall in revenues for those two areas this coming year and have proposed a 5 percent increase in water rates and an 8 percent increase for wastewater. If approved by the council city residents could see the average bill rise from $65.62 per month to $71.67. The hearing will begin this evening at 6 o’clock in the Twin Falls City Council chambers. The council will also hear from City Parks and Rec Director Dennis Bowyer regarding a possible hike in fees at the Twin Falls Golf Club to help offset increasing costs. Some fees would drop while other fees could go up by about ten percent. A public hearing is scheduled for that on Oct. 10th.
