DAYTON – The $2 a month hike in water rates for Dayton water users, last year, will go toward fixing one of the city’s 1930s-era water lines, its mayor said.
“We’re looking into redoing the (water) line through the tunnel and down the hill (to our) number one spring,” Mayor Dee Virile Christensen told The Citizen Saturday.
“We’re trying to get some funds ahead so we can use some of our own money,” he said.” It’s just something we’re trying to get started,” the mayor said, indicating the fix won’t come in the near future.
The old water rate was $18 for 35,000 gallons and now it’s $20. Water users pay for any overages above that, the mayor said.
