Jeffersonville residents can now receive a fixed rate for wastewater, or sewage, bills until the end of summer.
The city’s three-member sewer board adopted the policy Thursday to alleviate the high costs from extra water usage during hot days. Customers that sign up for the new wastewater billing program will pay $61.04 a month.
“If people don’t come down and sign up for this they won’t get it. So people have to come down and sign this piece of paper in order to get the relief," said Mayor Mike Moore.
