The Kampsville Village Board met on Monday, Aug. 1, at the Village Hall, where they approved the adoption of an ordinance that changed the Kampsville water and sewer rates and other fees.
The adoption of Ordinance 2022-6-6, amending Article II (Rates and Regulations) of Chapter 38 of the Revised Code of Ordiances, raises water and sewer rates by $21, changes the deposit to $150, and changes the tap-on fee to $1,250.
The new deposit will only affect new customers, according to Mayor Wade Gibson.
“Existing customers won’t have to pay the difference between the old deposit and the $150,” he said. “The change will only affect new customers.”
Gibson went on to note that the higher deposit will help the Village in the event that someone doesn’t pay their bill. The deposit is refundable as long as the customer doesn’t have an outstanding balance. This new deposit will be required by both owners and renters.
Also during the meeting, the board voted in favor of asking Kyle Godar to carryout ditch cleaning efforts of the Farrow Cemetery Bridge.
“We’ve gotta get these ditches cleaned out,” said Gibson.
Board member Rob Parmenter said that the Village doesn’t have the ideal equipment to complete the project and said Godar would be a good option.
Gibson said that the Village received around $34,000 for ditch cleaning.
The board approved the following items:
-The Mayor to issue citations for all violations of the Revised Code of Ordinance;
-The change of rates on citation fines issued for all violations of the Revised Code of Ordinance— minimum fines will be $75 and maximum fines will be $750;
-Water and Sewer Report.
Additionally, the board heard a presentation from Emily Fortschneider regarding a Rural Water Hook-Up possibility for emergency use. The item was tabled and will be discussed further at the September meeting.
The Kampsville Village Board meets on the first Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Village Hall located at 240 W. Oak Street.
