Ontario City Council is considering raising sewer rates in 2019. RichlandSource.com reports that the proposed legislation could see rates go up 10% in 2019. Ontario mayor Randy Hutchinson said “We received a 10% increase from Mansfield and we will have to pass it along to our residents. Ontario agreed to a contract with the city of Mansfield in 2014 for its wastewater treatment. The rates would go up incrementally throughout 2019 to make it more manageable for residents.
Ontario does not have a water treatment plant, but there has been some talk about building one. Ontario City Council is set to vote on the proposed legislation Dec. 19th.
