WATER DISTRICT EXPECTS INCREASE IN REVENUE
LOCKPORT -- The Niagara County Water District anticipates a revenue boost of $290,000 next year after the County Legislature last week approved a rate increase.
Starting Jan. 1, the 12 towns of Niagara County will pay the district 75 cents per 1,000 gallons of water, an increase of a nickel per 1,000 gallons. Customers outside the county, as well as the villages of Lewiston and Youngstown, will pay $1.50 per 1,000 gallons, a hike of a dime.
District Administrative Director Ronald C. Johnston said the district sells water to the Erie County Town of Grand Island, and to the towns of Yates, Ridgeway and Shelby and the Village of Medina in Orleans County.
