Following recent suggestions, the towns of Barrackville and Rivesville held public hearings on ordinances related to their respective water systems, both of which passed.
Barrackville customers most likely won’t notice a difference.
“There are no rate increases of any sort,” said Barrackville Mayor Roy Meeks. However, a number of changes have been made.
Meanwhile, in Rivesville, rates have raised across the board by about 7 percent because, as Rivesville Mayor Jim Hershman said, of a previously scheduled rate increase and the suggestion of the town’s auditor.
