Cannon Township raises sewer rates beginning in April
On February 11, 2013, the Township Board voted to increase sewer rates from $120.00 per quarter to $123.50 beginning in April. This increase had been unanimously recommended by the Sewer Committee, made up of three Board members, residents, the Township engineer and the Director of the North Kent Sewer Authority, who is a Cannon resident. The increase will help raise needed capital so that in the event of a catastrophic failure, Cannon Township will have the funds to handle it. It will also allow us to increase the fund balance and pay for needed televising of the system so we can develop a plan of preventative maintenance to greatly lessen the risk of failure. By comparison, Courtland Township’s quarterly rates are $150.00.
