Sewer rates increase

Elizabethtown Borough Council raised sewer rates by 16 percent earlier this month. The increase means the price per quarter for residents will rise from $63 to $73.

Council took action after a presentation earlier this fall that showed expenses outpacing revenues at the borough's sewage treatment plant.

The borough last raised sewer rates in 2004, when they increased from $48 to $63 per quarter.
