Increased treatment, employee costs lead to three percent hike

There will, however, be an increase in the town’s water rate. Geneva Town Supervisor Mark Venuti says the three percent hike is due primarily to an increase in the cost of chlorine and fluoride used to treat the water, as well as increased employee salaries and benefits.

The town is working on upgrading its Marsh Creek Pump Station. Residential and commercial development in the town is leading to increased demand for water.

Venuti presented his proposed town budget to the town board at its meeting this month. The board plans to hold a public hearing on the spending plan at its October 11 meeting.
