Dry Ridge residents soon will be paying more for water and sewer services.
The city council approved increased rates during its Jan. 4 meeting to help pay for construction on a new $15 million sewer plant on KY 36 in Williamstown.
Construction will begin in March, which is when the new rates take effect.
Funding for the plant is coming from more than 1,800 sewer customers in Williamstown and Dry Ridge, as well as tap on fees.
The city of Williamstown also recently increased their sewer rates.
