Youngstown sewer rates will increase Jan. 1

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — Wednesday night’s Youngstown City Council meeting determined that sewer rates will increase beginning next year.

Council voted unanimously to increase the cost of sewer bills. Rates will increase by a few dollars a year for the next four years.

To break it down, for residents who pay $50 a month on a sewer bill, it’ll go up by about $2 a month starting Jan. 1.

Mayor John McNally said it’s a part of an ongoing legal battle with the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Certaintly didn’t want to raise the rates, but these are the necessary improvement to our system then operation for 30 years with really no updates to the location on Poland Avenue,” said McNally.

Residents can expect a rate increase beginning Jan. 1.
