Fulton Mayor LeRoy Benton and members of the Fulton City Council have learned that the city faces the prospect of greater federal and state regulations that can lead to increased sewer and water bills in Fulton’s future.
During an informal work session prior to Tuesday’s regular city council meeting, Floyd Gilzow, director of member relations and public affairs for the Missouri Public Utility Alliance, briefed city leaders on current and future state and federal regulations on operating water and sewage systems.
Benton noted the city will need to make substantial investments in the future on operation of its sewage treatment plant. He said the city is in negotiations with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources on timelines for improvements that must be met.
