Rossville may repeal 'hated' fee on water bills

Posted: Updated:

ROSSVILLE, GA (Times Free Press) -- Rossville is poised to repeal what Mayor Teddy Harris describes as a "hated" fee and replace the revenue it generated by raising property taxes.

At its meeting Monday night, the City Council will have a first reading of its roughly $2 million annual operating budget. Council members will consider whether to do away with the Rossville administration fee, a $6.50-per-month charge that comes with residents' water and sewer bills.

It has been in place since 2004, Harris said.

The fee, which helps fund city services, doesn't have anything to do with water or sewer service; it just comes on the same bill.
