Water charges are to be increased from the current $11.34 to the new rate of $14.18 on the 1st 1,000 gallons used. For each additional 1,000 gallons, the rate is to increase from
The current $7.51 to the new charge of $9.39. City Clerk, Kerri Stamper, said upgrades are needed at the water plant.

Sewer charges are to jump from the current $5.25 cents to the new rate of $9.45 on the 1st 1,000 gallons used. For each additional 1,000 gallons of water used, the charge increases from the current $2.63 to the new rate of $4.73. The sewer rate increase is attributed to upgrades needed to meet government disinfection and ammonia standards. City Clerk Stamper said the sewer-related upgrades are to cost around $418,000.

An ordinance to raise the water and sewer rates is to be considered by the Princeton City Council next month. The new rates are expected to take effect with May usage.

In other action, the Princeton Council adopted an ordinance to close an alley between Ada and Prichard Streets. It makes official action taken last month by the Princeton Council to close the alley.

The Princeton Council has employed Kelly Hagan as a city maintenance position. It fills a vacancy created when Greg Goodknight moved to the City Superintendent's job.

Councilman Dee Hobbs agreed to serve on the Green Hills Regional Planning Commission Board of Directors to replace Councilman George Scurlock who no longer wished to be on the Planning Commission Board.

The City of Princeton will seek bids to sell the old City Hall building at 604 Main Street. This comes after the city received interest from a person to purchase the building. The structure currently is rented. An advertisement is to be prepared seeking bids.

The next Princeton City Council meeting is the night of April 8th at 6 o'clock at City Hall. That's a change of time for the warmer weather months.
