Altamont water tower

The Altamont City Council is scheduled to vote Monday whether to increase monthly water rates by $9.75 per user, starting Jan. 1.

The vote on the increase during the Nov. 23 meeting, which starts at 6 p.m., is to establish a captial infrastructure fee that would offset the cost of pre-engineering, engineering and any unexpected expenses for a proposed multi-phase water main replacement project.

The measure will also create a fund for unexpected expenses the project might generate.

Monday’s agenda also includes an announcement about the estimated tax levy, whether to improve a south lift station for $377,970 and hire Curry and Associates Engineering for $67,000 to design the improvements.

The council will also decide on a request to conduct a 5K run to be held Dec. 19.

Charles Mills can be reached at or by phone at 217-347-7151 ext. 126.
