The Tonawanda Town Board on Monday established new water rates for 2000, 2001 and 2001.
Water rates will increase by 2.9 percent in 2000, 2.8 percent in 2001 and 2.8 percent in 2002. As a result, the water bill for the average user would rise from $37.80 per quarter this year to $38.90 in 2001, $40 in 2001 and $41.10 in 2002, according to Town Supervisor Carl Calabrese.
Calabrese attended his final Town Board workshop Monday before beginning his new job as deputy county executive Jan. 4. Calabrese has been supervisor of the town for nearly seven years and a member of the Town Board for 14 years. He will, however, take the oath of office at the Town Board's reorganizational meeting on Jan. 3 and then resign the position after first appointing Councilman E. William acting supervisor until town Republicans decide whom to nominate as a replacement successor.
