Jamesport Missouri

The Jamesport City Council Monday evening approved an ordinance amending the water rates for Jamesport Water customers.

Jamesport City Clerk Shelley Page reports the water rates increased from $20.43 for the first 1,000 gallons to $23. The cost of each additional 1,000 gallons went from $9.30 to $11. Page says the new rates went into effect in April.

The council also accepted a bid for the purchase of a lawn mower from Bontrager Shop for $4,500 for a 52-inch Kawasaki.
