$109 a month


The new sewer rates proposed by the Licking County Commissioners aren't affordable for some Buckeye Lake residents.

According to my calculations, our residents are going to be paying about $109 per month for water and sewer. Monthly water bills are going to be at least $50 per month (plus or minus a few dollars) and we are already being assessed $10 per month for water. $49 + $50 + $10 = $109 and many of our fixed income residents will not be able to afford it. Everyone should attend the meeting at the Lakewood School on January 31 and voice their objections. Also sign one of the petitions.
