Water Bills On The Way Up

The Yankton City Commission will take the final steps at their meeting tonight to finalize new, higher water rates and surcharges needed to finance construction of new feeder wells and a water plant. The project could cost up to twenty nine million dollars. City Manager Amy Nelson said this is the final step for the city on the financial side of the project…

Nelson said they are still on schedule for the entire project, but it could slip…

Nelson said when the commission approves the higher rates, they will then file their application with the state to borrow up to twenty nine million dollars…

The schedule calls for completion of the wells and new water plant sometime in 2015.
