LEWISTON – The Lewiston Village Board will hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. Monday on its proposal to lower the sewer and water rates.

The board has proposed dropping the sewer rate by six cents to $4.59 per 100 cubic feet of water used, and reducing the water rate by six cents to $3.49 per 100 cubic feet of water used. The board has also proposed removing a $5 surcharge per billing cycle. If approved, these changes would become effective July 1.

The public hearing is slated for Village Hall, 145 N. Fourth St.

Following a public hearing last week, the board adopted its tentative $3.3 million budget for 2013-14, holding the line on taxes at $7.12 per $1,000 of assessed valuation following a public hearing.
