Per ordinance 2020-009 set forth by the Jonesboro Board of Aldermen and Mayor Leslie Thompson at their regularly scheduled September meeting, Chapter 32 of Appendix B of the Code of Ordinances of the Town of Jonesboro has been amended that establishes new water, sewage and garbage rates for residents inside and outside the city limits.
The good news is that in most cases there will not be much difference in what folks have been paying all along. That is, unless you use more than 2000 gallons a month or don’t have a water meter that is working. Both of these scenarios will come into play once new meters are installed.
For instance, if your water bill has been for an estimated 2000 gallons per month as has been the norm for the past several years due to the meters not working correctly and you are using more you will soon be paying for an exact amount of water you are using. If you don’t have a correctly working meter as most don’t there is going to be a fee charged for a new one to be installed.
