Board plans surcharge to help pay for new wastewater surcharge

Petersburg Village Board last week decided on a plan for a water surcharge to help pay for the new UV wastewater treatment system.
Funds from this monthly surcharge on water bills will help pay for installation of the required new system. The initial $30,000 bill from Rutjens Construction will be paid from sales tax revenues, and would leave $54,000 to be paid off with the surcharge.
The $3 surcharge would bring in about $6,300 a year, paying off the remaining amount in about nine years. The surcharge would be dropped once the system is paid off.
Details in the April 10 Petersburg Press Print & Electronic Editions.
