City leaders in Clinton, Iowa agreed to a first approval for a 9.5 percent sewer rate increase Tuesday night, May 14, 2013.

The city council previously turned down the increase, but recently, reversed the decision.

At the next council meeting May 28, 2013, they could put on their agenda for a 2nd, 3rd and adoption of the increase.

If a super majority agrees, it would be a done deal. If there isn't a majority it would then go to a 3rd reading at the June 11 meeting.

The increase will bump up sewer rates by 78 cents, to $8.96 per unit and if passed would take effect after July 1st.

The city is also looking at a summer watering credit, which would allow residents to have costs from watering during the season waived.

City administrator, Jessica Kinser says the money is needed because the city would not be allowed to pursue a state revolving fund loan. Without the rate increase it could not prove that it has enough funds to meet the requirements of the state loan.

Kinser says the city needs the money to complete a pump station project that is required by the EPA, by delaying the project the city would face hefty fines.
