Commissioners heard an update from the Seward County Development Corporation and in a discussion item, a sewer rate study was done to review future costs and income to decide if the funds would be available to pay the new SRF loan payments. It was found that the City would need to raise rates or add a $10.00 fixed charge to the monthly rates in order to cover the loan payments. This will be discussed further with the Commission, Engineering and Administration at the next Commission meeting to decide on the best approach.
