Water and sewer rates could rise


The Norton Board of Water/Sewer Commissioners is considering raising residents’ water and sewer rates by 4.25 percent, according to board chairman Steven Wiseman. The town is working to make improvements in drinking-water quality, he said, and the increases would generate revenue to help fund a water treatment plant. He said the last time rates were increased was at least four years ago, before he joined the board, and it was “not a major increase.” The board will hold a public hearing on the proposal Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Water/Sewer Department. If approved, higher rates would go into effect for bills issued on or after June 1.
