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.
