ELIDA — Mayor Kim Hardy addressed the water rates for the Elida at Tuesday’s village council meeting.
“It has been four weeks since we discussed how to determine the strategy of water rates. Basically, we re-vamped the rate system and by the information we currently have, we have restructured the billing,” Hardy said. “The increase would be $3-$4 and we have changed the minimum water usage from 1,500 up to 1,700 gallons per month. This would assist in those who have a minimum to decrease their rates and be a benefit to them. In actuality, that would affect about 40 people on the minimum.”
