Betterton Hands Out Water-Sewer Relief

The Betterton town council approved lowering water-sewer overage charges from $20 to $15 and agreed overages should be applied to water only. Residents have been up in arms since the third quarter of last year when the town council raised rates and said the extra money was to be used for a new wastewater treatment plant. Some residents were getting $1,000 water bills and had no idea why.
