Mineola Village Water Rates Increase
Village residents who use more than 10,000 gallons of water in a six-month billing cycle will see a slight increase in their water rates, according to a new local law adopted by the Village of Mineola Board of Trustees, acting as the village's board of water commissioners. The new law, adopted last Wednesday, following a public hearing came to a fruition as a result of an increase in maintenance fees that came as a result of state and county mandates and the need to renovate equipment, according to village officials who testified at the hearing.
