The Niskayuna Town Board will conduct a public hearing tonight to discuss proposed new rent rates for the town's Sewer District 6, which serves most of the town.
The hearing will begin at 7 p.m.
Under the proposed new plan, residents who use up to 21,000 gallons of water in 2020 will be charged $63 for sewer rents, according to town figures. In 2019, residents who used up to 25,000 gallons were charged $62.50.
Also under the plan, residents who use between 21,001 and 50,000 gallons of water will be charged the $63, plus $3 for each 1,000 gallons of water used in excess of 21,000 gallons.
The proposal says residents who use more than 50,000 gallons will be charged $150.
Commercial rates also will be discussed. Business owners who use up to 21,000 gallons of water will be charged $73.50. The charge in 2019 was $75 for up to 25,000 gallons.
Commercial accounts that use more than 21,000 gallons will be charged the $73.50, plus $3.50 for each 1,000 gallons of water used in excess of 21,000 gallons.
