Board Member Norwood asked Attorney Logan what we need to do to move forward to look at raising the rates.

Board Member Norwood asked do we need to make a motion to move forward with raising the rates. Attorney Logan stated yes. Board Member Norwood made a motion to move forward to raise the rates water a $1 and sewer a $1.  Board Member McKinnon seconded.  Board Member Mills stated before doing this we need to do some research on how much we need to raise based on our needs not what other facilities rates. Board Member Mills stated if he is asked why the rated increase he wants to be able to tell them the reasons why.
