Greenwood must make system improvements or face fines

Greenwood residents would start paying more for sewer service in June and then see another increase next year as part of a proposal to pay for patching and replacing aged sewer pipes.

The city council would need to approve both rate increases, which would add up to about $5 more per month for an average Greenwood sewer customer after both increases, controller Adam Stone said. Right now, an average residential sewer bill is $32 a month for 5,000 gallons of water, he said.

Residents have been paying more in their monthly sewer bills after multiple increases in the past few years because the city wasn’t charging enough to keep up with expenses, officials said.
