ROSSVILLE, Georgia (WDEF) – Residents in Walker county have seen a increase in their sewer bills.
Sewer bills are almost double the minimum rate for a single family household.
Low income families are having a hard time paying for the sewer and water on top of other bills.
Ricky Cox from Rossville explains his problem.
” I get 700 dollars a month for disability,momma gets 1000 dollars a month for disability. With hers and mine, we barely can cover the bills.”
Recently, the Walker County Water and Sewage Authority Board began surveying areas for a sewage diversion project.
We have reached out to the Water Treatment Plant manager and the Walker County Commissioner.
