Fall River Water Rate Hikes Going To Council

After debating and tabeling the request throughout a large portion of 2021, the Fall River City Council's Committee on Ordiances and Legislation agreed last night to send a package of water and sewer rate hikes, that will cost the average Fall River Family a little over $5 a year, to the full nine member council for a vote that will likely happen in December. 


The package will arrive without a recomendation from the committee, which voted last night 3-1, with Michelle Dionne voting no and Shawn Cadime not at the session. 


Council Vice President Pam Lebeau indicated last night that she will vote no on the rate increases when they come before Council this winter.
