As many of you may have noticed, I have not had time to post as many stories as usual.  Life is pretty hectic right now and that trend may need to continue for a time. If anyone has an announcement or statement to share, I'm happy to use this space for that kind of community connection. I'll continue to post council meeting agendas and community events as I have time. Please email me with news or comments at karen.pickett.mba@gmail.com. Thanks!

Another Sewer Rate Increase

Ruston officials will consider passing along a sewer rate increase to its customers that hit from Tacoma on January 1st. First reading of the proposal is scheduled for the council meeting tonight. This increase comes on the heels of a major increase for rate payers last year as the sewer replacement loan repayment began.
