Water Rate Hike Considered In Urbanna

Urbanna Town Council is considering a 10% water rate hike for in-town customers, citing the need to align rates with state guidelines for grant eligibility. Despite the increase, Urbanna’s rates would still be lower than neighboring Middlesex Water Authority. The proposal aims to bridge the gap between in-town and out-of-town rates gradually. A public hearing is scheduled for June 13 to gather community feedback on the proposed increase.
