water rate increase for all users of the Village of Lowville water system,
including outside districts.

infrastructure upgrades currently underway on the water system.
A ten percent increase on both water and sewer rates in the Village was
implemented effective last November 1st.

comment session, scheduled for December 19th at 4 p.m. at the Village office
on Bostwick Street.
