Budget passes, utility rates up
Flomaton OKs budget for 2021-2022 year
September 16, 2021
The Flomaton Town Council passed its 2021-2022 budget Monday afternoon that projects revenues to be 20 percent above expenses and also increases water, sewer and garbage rates by 3 percent beginning Oct. 1.
Mayor Dewey Bondurant, Jr., said the budget does include two new vehicles for the utility department: one for the parks and the other for waste water.
Mayor Bondurant said in years past the council had automatically raised utility rates 3 percent but had stopped that practice several years ago. He said the council voted last year to increase rates 3 percent but it was never done.
