Find election results in this week's paper
This summer, city water customers can expect a new charge to appear on their water bills in order to help finance the city’s largest capital project ever. Marion City Council on Monday introduced an ordinance to establish an environmental assessment fee that will be added to all water bills effective July 1. The revenue, City Administrator Mark Bryant explained, is needed to start a $10-$12 million sewer system rehabilitation project that will include a new wastewater treatment plant.
