Mount Airy water and sewer customers will see an increase in their bills starting Sept. 1. The Mount Airy Town Council voted 4-1 to approve the rate increase during a town meeting Aug. 7. Council member Stephen Domotor was the lone vote against the rate hike. Town officials had proposed the rate increases as a way to help the town reduce a $274,546 shortfall in the fiscal 2024 operating budget. Domotor said he voted in opposition because the increases do nothing to address a capital budget deficit, which stands at $208,500.
