Sewer rates in Buzzards Bay will remain the same for the coming year.
Bourne town administrator Thomas M. Guerino announced during Tuesday’s sewer commissioners’ meeting that the sewer rate will stay $734 for the coming year.
The town administrator said that this will be the fifth year in a row that sewer rates will have not increased.
“Because of the retained earning health we were able to underwrite a little bit in order to maintain the rates at the same level,” he said.
Sewer commissioners also approved keeping the overage rate at 1 cent for every gallon in excess of 45,000 gallons of water.
