WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority Board of Directors today approved its budget for the next fiscal year including a water rate hike.
Customers will see an average 2.05-percent increase. For the average customer, that’s an extra $15.48 per year.
Chairman Mike Brown and New Hanover County Commissioner Pat Kusek voted against the hike.
Kusek said she doesn’t feel comfortable increasing rates in light of the GenX controversy.
