Winamac Adds Utility Connection and Disconnection Charges

winamacThe Town of Winamac will soon be charging fees for the connection and disconnection of electricity and water services. Last week, the Winamac Town Council approved an ordinance charging its utility customers $25 to have their utilities disconnected and another $25 to have them reconnected.

Clerk-Treasurer Melanie Berger says the fees are being implemented in an effort to help ease the workload of town employees. She says connecting and disconnecting utilities often takes employees away from their regular duties.
