Pooler to increase water, sewer bill by 10%

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - Pooler residents should expect to see a 10 percent hike in their water and sewer bills.

Pooler City Council approved the increase on Tuesday night. City officials say the rate increase was needed because operational costs of the wastewater treatment plant exceeded the money the water and sewer fund had in reserves.

Pooler City Councilmembers say insurance fees for homes and businesses will be heading down.
