The likelihood Walhallans to pay more for sewer

The stark financial scenario facing the county’s sewer authority could translate into future service cost increases for Walhalla.  The mayor and the council were put on notice last night by their utilities director and their interim administrator that there’s potential for the city’s treatment charges to increase by $200 thousand if the Joint Regional Sewer Authority goes into debt to make treatment plant corrections that an outside consultant estimates could cost $16 million.  Walhalla utilities superintendent Scott Parris is a voting member of the JRSA board and interim administrator Brandon Burton was an interested spectator at Monday’s JRSA board meeting.
