PETERSBURG, VA (NBC12) - It's going to cost you more for water service in Petersburg. City Council voted to increase several fees, including the reconnect fee.
It's now $10 but, starting in january of next year the price will double to $20. The fee to remove a meter for unauthorized use will triple from $25 to $75.
City leaders say the price hike is necessary especially since an increase hasn't been implemented since 1981.
