Salisbury City Council Votes Cut in Water Capacity Fees

Jul 25, 2012

Water capacity fees for new developments look like they should be coming down in the city of Salisbury.

This week the City Council voted unanimously to cut the current fee by 65 percent – from $85-hundred to just under $34-hundred per equivalent dwelling unit.

Council President Terry Cohen noted that the reduction comes in the wake of the dramatic slowdown in growth.

Brad Gillis with the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce told the council that the cut in the capacity fees will help with the economic slowdown and put people back to work.
