Yankton To Discuss Wastewater Rate Increases

Yankton To Discuss Wastewater Rate Increases

Yankton’s wastewater treatment plant is set to undergo necessary upgrades within the next four years, but that means the city is going to have to increase wastewater rates.

The Yankton City Commission will hold a work session tonight (Monday) to discuss the proposed rate increases, their necessity, and how they will take shape in the coming years.

Yankton City Manager Amy Leon said the city must operate on a compressed timeline for deciding on rate hikes…

Leon adds that the upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant are essential…

The work session begins at 6 p.m. in the RTEC meeting room.  The public is highly encouraged to attend. The commission will not take any formal actions on proposed wastewater rate hikes tonight.
