Valley voters gave the thumbs up at the polls this week for various road and
sewer improvement projects, along with charter changes geared to reform the
annual budget approval process.
Derby voters, during Tuesday’s election, approved a $31.2 million sewer
project by a vote of 1,759 to 1,256. The long overdue upgrades to the failing
sewer infrastructure, where equipment is more than 50 years old and prone to
chronic breakdowns, are scheduled to be phased in over five years. The project
costs will be bonded over 30 years to ease the financial impact on rate payers.
Rates for residential sewer users will increase by $257 next year for single
family homes and $514 for multi-family homes. Sewer bills will be split into two
installments to help soften the blow to rate payers.
