Hermitage Raises Water Rates

The Hermitage City Council meet for their regular monthly City Council meeting June, 20th. Council members Carol Bell, Tonya Kendrix and Frank Ford were present.  Wade Wolfe was absent.

Reports were given by the water, sewer, fire and police departments.  No street report was available. Fire Chief Booker asked for an ordinance to bill insurance for car fires and rescue outside the city limits.  

Ordinance #111 was approved raising rates to cover the cost of water improvements. The ordinance also affects water deposits, reconnect fees and changes to rules and regulations of the Water/Sewer/Garbage Department.  The vote was 3 for and 0 against.

There was a discussion about the law that prohibits ATV's being driven on city streets, county roads and state highways.  First offenders will be issue a citation that carries a fine of no less than $145.00 and a second offense can result in the ATV or illegal dirt bike being impounded.

The council accepted the resignation of alderman Wade Wolfe and voted to hire Steven Baker to be paid from street funds at a rate of $10.00 per hour for 28 hours per week.
