A public hearing on a proposed water rate increase for Sunrise Beach has been scheduled for next month by the Village Board of Trustees. This will be the second hearing on the proposal. At the first hearing several business owners like Earl Jameson of Pro Team Marine attended and voiced their opposition to the proposed 70 percent increase in their rates saying the hike would put a large strain on them.
The rate for residential customers would also see an increase. The public hearing is scheduled for Monday, august 11th at the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District Administration Building and begins at 5:30 pm.
