Regulations for sanitary sewer pre-treatment and recycling program upkeep require fee adjustments for Township services.
The Board of Supervisors on October 29 approved updates to the rate schedule for Pretreatment Permit Fees, Solid Waste Services and Recreational and Meeting Room Facility fees.
Rates are routinely reviewed to ensure they cover the costs so that general tax revenue is not needed to fill in gaps.
The pretreatment increases are associated with sanitary sewer pre-treatment permits required by the federal and state EPA.
The solid waste fee adjustments are needed as state aid being provided to municipalities to support mandated recycling programs has decreased. The fee will help with the replacement of 27,000 carts that are nearing 18-years-old for nearly 10,000 solid waste customers.
