Cape Girardeau sewer utilities going up

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Whether you rent or own in Cape Girardeau, your sewer bill's going up next month.

Cape city leaders say most sewer customers will see an average monthly increase of at least $21 starting July 1.

It's all part of a sewer rate increase voters approved in April 2011.

The increase will help pay for a new wastewater treatment facility.

This increase only applies to Cape Girardeau sewer customers.
