Summer sewage rates extended in Lafayette
Lafayette is encouraging its residents to beautify their property despite the summer drought.
The city is extending summer sewage rates, so homeowners won’t be charged more for watering their lawns and gardens.
Mayor Tony Roswarski says it’s a one-time move based on unique circumstances.
The extension is for one month.
Each year, Lafayette reduces the amount of sewage charged to residents during the summer for these watering purposes.
The amount is determined by the average amount of water used during the previous winter months of December, January, February and March.
