Council From Page 5 This segment of the streetscaping project is anticipated to be completed in 2019, and is part of a larger street overhaul project estimated to cost about $15 million over several years. Water rates The council also voted Wednesday to approve an increase in water rates for non-Lockport residents living in Lockport Township. For years, unincorporated township residents have paid 15 percent less on their water bills than their counterparts in the City of Lockport. This variance was ruled outdated and no longer necessary, so the council had previously agreed to raise the township rate, making it equal for all residents. Some debate broke out over when the change should be implemented. Legally, the City has to give residents and township officials 60-days notice, though Streit was in favor of putting the raise in effect on Oct. 1, which would give the township six-months notice, “out of courtesy, since the rule has been this way for so long.” This was contested by Perretta, who said the 60- day minimum was plenty of notice. “We’re making this change, we should be collecting our money as soon as possible,” she said. Other board members backed up her claim, and the board eventually voted to pass the motion with the stipulation that the new rates will go into effect on July 1. All the new revenue from the increased township rates will go to the Lockport Water Department. BOOST YOUR BUSINESS NOW: 708.329.8594 or FOR MORE: 22CMBOOST.COM
