Trustees voted unanimously Thursday evening to raise water and sewer charges to customers within the Village of Alden while leaving rates for out-of-district customers at current levels. Effective retroactive to January 16, water will be billed at $3.95 and sewer at $6.45 per 1000 gallons of water metered. Users outside the village limits will continue to pay $7.10 and $11.40 respectively for water and sewer. The sewer capital charge for all customers rises to $22.00 per quarter. The new rates will be reflected in the May 2016 billing.
