Sulphur Springs City Council unanimously approved a new ‘Street Maintenance Fee’ on water bills during last night’s meeting. A $5 fee will be added to water bills for single family residences and $3.75 for multi-family residences. The new fee is expected to generate over $400,000 for street maintenance in the first year.
This was the first reading of the ordinance. The second and final vote on the ordinance will be held at next month’s council meeting.
