Selectmen this week approved hikes in the town's water and sewer rates. Under the new rates, the average water bill will go up $17.66 per year, and the average sewer rate will increase $54.61 per year, said Town Administrator Charles Aspinwall.
Selectmen also increased the fine for tampering with water meters from $150 to $500. Aspinwall said two people were caught tampering with meters last year, and one more is under investigation.
Selectmen left the permit fee for the town's waste transfer station untouched, but the price of town garbage bags will go up from $1.50 to $1.65.
