$10 city services fee passes on first reading

A $10-a-month city services fee could go a long way toward making sure the city of Huntington ends the year in the black.

Or maybe not, depending on whose figures are used.

The Huntington Common Council chose to believe it would. During its meeting on Tuesday, May 11, the council voted 5-2 to pass on first reading an ordinance that would implement the fee in July of this year. The fee would be charged to every holder of a city utility account and, unless action is taken to extend the fee, would expire on May 1, 2011.
