On June 4, 2013, Town Council approved a water and wastewater rate increase of 8.7% to directly fund projects and equipment. The increase was effective as of July 1, 2013.
No general tax revenues (i.e. real estate, personal property, sales, or meals taxes) are used to fund water and wastewater services and projects. Vinton’s rates continue to be competitive and lower than all neighboring localities.
