The City of Marengo increased water and sewer rates by 5 percent on April 1, 2011.

The increase was scheduled and approved back in 2008, said Joshua Blakemore, assistant to the Marengo City Administrator.

“The council approved a series of 5 per-cent increases over a four-year period; and this is the last of those scheduled ones,” Blakemore said.
