FROM THE STAFF AND BOARD OF THE VILLAGE OF WITHEE
Sewer Rate Increase
The Village of Withee has approved at the August 11, 2014 meeting to increase sewer rates. The new rates will be an increase of $2.00 per meter charge and $.50/1,000 gallons volume charge. This rate increase was needed because the sewer account is not generating enough income for the expenses. The increase will go into effect for the September billing.
The Village of Withee Staff and Board would like to thank the person or persons that trimmed all the bushes around the Village Hall/Library. It looks great! Whomever you are that did this work, we would like to thank you!!!!!!!!!!
