Public invited to Dagsboro’s discussion on water rate hike from Millsboro

DAGSBORO – Facing an 80 percent rate hike for water the town of Dagsboro purchases from the town of Millsboro, Dagsboro officials have scheduled “extensive discussion” at its Monday, Sept. 16 council meeting.

The meeting at the Bethel Center (28307 Clayton Street) will begin at 6 p.m.

Town officials encourage the public to attend.

Discussion will include possible options presented by Jean Holloway, State Program Manager for Delaware/Maryland Eastern Shore SERCAP (Southeast Rural Community Assistance Project).

“The more people that are made aware of this important issue the better,” said Dagsboro Town Administrator Cindi Brought.

Recently, the town received a bill and notification from Millsboro of Millsboro’s 80 percent water rate increase, effective July 1, 2019.
