The sewer rate will go up $2 per month beginning in the same time period. The second phase starts May 1, 2015 and will increase water bills by $5.04, while sewer bills will go up another $2.30 in December of 2015. The public hearing will take place during the Culver Town Council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 11th at 6:30 p.m. ET.
