Cape Fear Public Utility Authority customers to see hike in rate

Video

Body

Customers of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will see an increase in their bills by July.

A spokesperson said the proposed rate increase could go up anywhere from five to nine percent.

There are a few options on the table; a hike in fixed fees or on water consumption.

The increase would bring in around $170 million the authority says it needs for updating the system and financing a new treatment plant.

The authority plans to hold a public hearing later this month on the issue.
