Trumbull Co., Warren's sewer rate dispute on hold
Trumbull County and Warren officials will meet Friday in an effort to resolve a dispute over sewer rates that could affect thousands of Trumbull County property owners.
A dispute between the county Sanitary Engineer’s office and city of Warren dating back more than a year became public Tuesday when county commissioners and Gary Newbrough, deputy Trumbull County sanitary engineer, discussed it at a public meeting.
The commissioners had intended to pass a resolution Wednesday that would have notified Warren that the county was canceling an agreement between the county and city regarding sewage rates the county charges to customers in an area of Warren near North Road and Elm Road.
Newbrough said the reason for that was the city had given the county a “non-negitiable” demand for higher sewer rates for customers in Champion and Lordstown that would raise rates 200 percent to 300 percent for Champion, Lordstown and many other areas in the county by 2023.
