Archbold village council met on Monday.
Council passed an ordinance that will provide for a water rate adjustment. The water-rate increase will take place in the June 2013 billing statement and reflects a 1 percent rate increase.
Archbold officials say the increase for the average resident will be less than a $1 per month and about $11.23 per year. It was also recommended to the minimum charge from $6.25 to $7. The minimum charge would be for usage less than 3,000 gallons per month.
Council also approved the hiring of a probationary, full-time police officer.
