Water and Sewer Rates Going Up in Hermiston
Water and sewer rates are going up in Hermiston.
Last night, the City Council approved a plan to raise the rates by 16% by July 2015.
The increase will come in the form of four 4% raises each six months beginning in January.
The rate increases are part of a plan to pay for the construction and operation of the city's new $27.2 million recycled water treatment plant.
