Century Workshop Tonight To Discuss Water, Gas, Garbage Rates

March 20, 2017

The Century Town Council will hold a public workshop this evening to discuss water, gas and garbage rates.

At recent council meetings, Mayor Henry Hawkins has called for  rates to be increased  to stop financial losses. Alicia Jernigan, Century’s certified wastewater operator, said the town’s wastewater “is failing”, comprised of aging equipment that has not been properly maintained, is wearing out, or is now functionally obsolete.

The special hearing on “enterprise rates” — water, gas and garbage — will be held at 6 p.m. at the Century Town Hall. A regular council meeting will follow at 7 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.

    I cannot believe there is only this comment posted as to BASIC services for Century.
    It’ll be interesting to have a report on the number of citizens that take the time to attend this meeting. Unbiased thoughts…I don’t live in Century, but friends do.
