Laurel City Council votes to increase water, sewer, & garbage rates

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Residents in Laurel will see an increase in their water, sewer, and garbage rates effective November 1.

Tuesday evening the Laurel City Council voted five to one in favor of increasing rates for the third straight year. City officials say the rate increase will go to helping repair the city's dilapidated water sewer system.  

Mayor Mack says, although residents are paying higher rates, the city hasn't raised taxes since 2001.
