CENTERVILLE — The City Council has invited the public to comment on proposed drainage user fee increases. Several scenarios are under consideration and will be considered at an upcoming open house and public hearing.

Fees would increase to help fund current and future drainage projects and to fund the operation and maintenance of Centerville's drainage systems. The fees — known as “drainage utility” and “subsurface drain” fees on the monthly utility bills — have not increased since being imposed in 1999 and 2001, respectively.

The open house will be Feb. 17 at City Hall, 250 N. Main, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and followed by a public hearing at 7 p.m. Comments may be submitted at the meeting by sending letters to City Hall, or emailing drainagefees@centervilleut.com.

Information on fee increase scenarios and the February city newsletter utility insert can be found at centervilleut.net.
