Chuck Emmons had only one question on his mind when he showed up at the February meeting of the Bullock Pen Water District.
“Why has the water rate gone up so much?” Emmons, of Verona, asked the water commissioners.
“There’s been one raise in 22 years,” said Bobby Burgess, chairman of the water board. “We’d been able to live off the growth.”
Bullock Pen provides water to homes in parts of Grant and Boone counties, as well as to cities such as Williamstown and Dry Ridge.
