The town of Littleville is increasing their water and sewer rates by $20 a month.
The town sent out letters to residents saying their water bills will go up by about $2.75 a month, but their sewer rates would also increase by $17 dollars a month. For those on a fixed income they said the increase is to much at once.
"I think it's to much for people on a fixed income," said Jerry Robison, who lives in Littleville. "A lot of people around here is unhappy with it."
The town of Littleville sent out these letters to residents about the increase saying they needed the additional funds to fix their aging water and sewer systems to meet requirements by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.
The rate increase will go into effect in August.
We did reach out to the mayor of Littleville to find out how much the infrastructure cost could be to fix their aging water and sewer systems but we have not heard back from him.
