The Madison City Commission has adopted a resolution establishing the costs for tapping water mains and water meters.
Utilities Supervisor Brad Lawrence told commissioners that the resolution hadn’t been updated since 2013. He said that with the increasing price of things like copper and brass, these costs needed to be updated so that the city isn’t losing money when installing them. Lawrence said the amount of the increase varies.
Lawrence said that the city doesn’t handle a large volume of these, but adjusting the cost will help balance out the city’s costs for tapping water mains and putting in water meters.
