ECUA to reduce proposed rate increase
Today the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority board voted to reduce a proposed rate increase for residential sanitation service.
It was supposed to take effect Tuesday, October First.
The board chose to adopt a 1.2 percent increase on its overall sanitation rate to offset the 3.5 percent rate increase on the disposal fee at the Escambia County owned and operated Perdido Landfill.
That rate has increased by 44.5 percent since 2008.
The rate increase on the disposal fee is also set to take effect October 1st.
