Water rates could rise 20 percent in Burlco

The price of water could jump 20 percent in Burlco.  A hearing is set for 7 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the Westampton Municipal Building.

Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio is asking New Jersey American Water Co. to reschedule the hearing after the holidays so residents can attend.  He said the company should send all ratepayers a notice about the proposed increase and the date and time of the hearing along with next month's bills. 

Last year, the utility company raised rates 6.8 percent.
