7.34% for water, 16.92% for sewer

After not putting in any increases for water and sewer for three years, the Vandalia City Council on Monday decided to add increases that mirror the expenses for those services in the past year.
The council voted 6-1 on Monday to increase the water rates by 7.34 percent and sewer rates by 16.92 percent.
Aldermen Bret Brosman (water and sewer committee chairman), Andy Lester, Joel Rebbe, Russ Stunkel, Steve Barker and Ken Hubler voted for those increases, and Mike Hobler cast the lone dissenting vote; Dorothy Crawford was not present for the meeting.
