Judge to make decision regarding water bill increases in Rainelle

Posted:
RAINELLE, WV -

(Rainelle, WV) The new water filtration system in the town of Rainelle was paid for with a loan. Households in Rainelle now must pay back the loan. Some residents attended a hearing today to voice concern over an increased water bill.

The current suggested rate increase is 93 cents per household. A judge is reviewing the matter to determine if that amount is enough to avoid a default on the loan.

The judge should make a decision by July. Public hearings may be ongoing and any further hearings will be publicized by the town of Rainelle.
