ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) —  Annapolis is planning two community meetings this month to inform the public about increases to the city’s water and sewer rates.

Mayor Joshua J. Cohen will hold the first 90-minute forum on July 14 at Georgetown East Elementary. The second forum will be held on July 20 at the Mount Olive Community Life Center. Information on the increases also is available on the city’s website.

Cohen says the increases come at a very difficult time and will impact every property owner in the city.

The city said in a news release that the rate increases went into effect on Friday, representing an increase of $23 per month for the average single-family home that uses 167 gallons of water per day.

The city council approved the increases last month.
