Rate Hike Pushed Back In Wauseon

Wauseon residents get a two-month reprieve from a scheduled water rate hike…during the economic upheaval that is coronavirus. City Council amended the third reading of an ordinance approving the increase, changing the starting date from June 1 to Aug. 1. Council members unanimously agreed to the delay, citing the unsteady economic conditions resulting from COVID-19. In other business, Council approves a motion to honor the city’s 250 military veterans with downtown signs…but will put that on hold until current coronavirus restrictions are eased. Members requested the signs be put up and removed with assistance from the city’s Public Works Department.
