(Continued)

PALESTINE —

The Residential base rate for sewer surcharge for 2,000 gallons is now $8.92 and $2 per thousand over the minimum. Commercial base rate for sewer surcharge for 2,000 gallons is $6.75 and $2 per thousand over the minimum.

Solid Waste will increase to $18.32 for each residential customer and $38.83 for each commercial customer. This new rate reflects an increase imposed by the city contractor, Progressive Waste Management, and operational expenses for the city.

All residential and commercial customers outside the city limits will be charged at a rate that is 1.25 times the rates set for residential and commercial customers inside the city limits.
