    Leesburg Town Council approves increased utility fees

    As of July 22, Leesburg can expect to see increased water and sewage rates. Town Council approved the move in a 5-2 vote.

    Increased rates were proposed to cover long-term utility needs that were not met by rate revenue previous to the raise.

    The council's vote established a change in the water and sewer fixed charges. Changes to the fixed rate will be fazed in over five years.

    In addition, a single-family residential billing cap was put in place at 36,000 gallons of water per quarter.

    Council also voted to implement miscellaneous fees, including water system connection and meter installation fees raised to $80 for residential and $120 for commercial. Water system property damage repair and replacement cost was raised to $50.

    “I would love to keep the rates as they are...” said Council Member Marty Martinez. “I know that if we want to ensure the viability of the town and its infrastructure, it's something we need to do. And sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do it.”
