Ferriday water bills going up...again

Posted: Updated:

FERRIDAY, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Water rates are on the rise in Ferriday. In a special called meeting Monday morning at town hall, the board of alderman voted to raise rates by six bucks per month.

This is not the first time residents are coughing up more cash to pay their water bills. Alderman Johnnie Brown confirms home and business owners saw their rates go up last year, also by six dollars per month.

The suggestion to raise rates came from the USDA. Brown says he voted against the measure because there is no long term plan to repair the town's debt or water issue.
