The second increase is for 7 percent, which would be an additional $2.66 on average. The second increase would pay for an $8.35 million sewer system upgrade.
Upgrades include adding service to Blakes Creek and Eastwood Acres, replacing Pump Station 6, relocating a 100-year old line that runs under Nitro High School and purchasing equipment.
The ordinance also calls for a $70 security deposit for new customers. The deposit would either be applied to the account or returned to the customer after a year.
A public hearing will be held at the next City Council meeting, on Dec. 18.
In other business, the council accepted a bid from Camel Technologies to purchase and install five security cameras at Ridenour Lake.
The cameras will cost about $9,300 and be paid for with a grant.
Police Chief Brian Oxley said officers would have remote access to the cameras, so they can watch them at the station, in their cars or even on mobile devices.
"I think this will be a big deterrent and help us solve a lot of vandalism," Oxley said.
