No rate increase or layoffs in 2017

There will not be an increase in Hamilton County’s sewer rates in 2017. ¬†There will also be no layoffs among sewer district employees because of this decision.

County officials and MSD continue to have different opinions about the 2017 budget. At the December 14th public hearing regarding the proposed 2017 budget Commissioner Chris Monzel assured the community that MSD’s threat to lay off workers if its proposed budget wasn’t approved saying is NOT true stating that,”There will be no rate increase, there will be no layoffs.”

Thank you to all who came out to give public comments regarding the 2017 budget proposal on December 7th and December 14th.  Take a look at public comments made by ECO at the hearings here.
