Lexington residents could soon be paying more for water and sewer.

Village Council heard the first reading for an ordinance to increase water and sanitary sewer rates during the regular meeting Monday night.

The rate increase would be effective from Jan. 1, 2013 to Jan. 1, 2015.
 

Public utilities chairman Wynn Kearns said the rate increase comes out to $2.85 per month for the average residence for the  two month billing cycle. 

"This year we decided to do a three year rate schedule. Last two years we have not had an increase. This year we had some short falls and we had to increase rates because of that," Kearns said.

"The amount of water and sewer waste we treat has not changed. It's the cost per gallon that have changed," Kearns said.

Kearns said village council will listen to the feedback from residents about the proposed increase. 
 He said council will hopefully make a decision about the ordinance at its next council meeting later this month.
