bedford county schools logoThe Bedford Regional Water Authority, on Tuesday approved an increase to the average water and sewer bill—due in part to the increased spending needs as part of a 10 year plan for Bedford reverting from a city to a town and becoming part of the county. The county’s Public Service Authority and the Bedford City Water and Wastewater Department combined to create the BRWA. According to the News & Advance, over the next nine years, rate changes will affect customers differently because of the service zones; with some customers possibly seeing a decrease this year. The rates are set for a vote after a public hearing June 17.
