(MITCHELL) - The City of Mitchell will hold a public hearing on the proposed sewer rate increase at 7 p.m. on March 26 at City Hall.

This meeting will provide residents a chance to voice their opinion on the waste water treatment plant upgrades and subsequent cost to users. The city council will make a decision on whether or not to raise sewer fees after the hearing.

City officials are proposing a 45 percent rate hike to upgrade the aging waste water treatment plant. The plant has not been upgraded since 1987.

Steve Gress of Donohue and Associates, the engineering firm working on the plan to upgrade the plant, said the scope of the project has been cut down considerably over the past several months to bring the cost down to $3,309,477.

The repairs to the Meridian Road facility will include replacing the aging equipment, but no new structural improvements.
