Northumberland sanitary district fees may increase

by Madison White Franks

HEATHSVILLE—Northumberland County officials are considering a proposal to gradually increase the fee for sewer services provided by the Reedville and Callao sanitary districts.

County administrator Luttrell Tadlock indicated there have been problems with delinquent bills totaling approximately $50,000 to $60,000.

The county has sent letters to collect delinquent balances. The sanitary district has the authority to terminate service; however, the county has been trying to work with individuals by setting up payment plans first, said Tadlock.

Tadlock cited other factors that also have affected annual operations to the point that “the average revenue for the sanitary district is approximately $200,000 below what is needed,” he said.
