Council gives initial OK to higher property-tax rate
KERENS – Water and sewer rates were raised during Kerens City Council’s Aug. 7 meeting, effective Oct. 1. The marathon meeting also featured an in-depth discussion on the 2018- 19 Kerens budget, along with property-tax rates applicable for 2018.
Water and sewer rates were raised in response to the City of Kerens’ water supplier, the City of Corsicana, hiking its wholesale price by 35 cents per 1,000 gallons, effective Oct. 1. Kerens’ increase, in turn, will cover Corsicana’s hike, as well as covering higher operational costs for Kerens, Saunders said.
