Possible Dutchess Park sewer rate hike to be discussed

FISHKILL – Planned rate increases for residents in the Dutchess Park Sewer District in the Town of Fishkill will be the topic of a public hearing at Fishkill Town Hall on Wednesday, August 7 at 7 p.m.

The town board is proposing the revised rates “to defray costs of operating the sewer district and to restore a significant negative fund balance” in the district, said Town Supervisor Robert LaColla.

The rate would increase would be in the minimum charge for 1,000 cubic feet of sewage, from $41.40 to $97.29. The rate for flows above the minimum would go from $0.4140 to $0.09729.
