MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Maryville City Council is weighing a recommendation to drastically raise water and sewer rates following the first in-depth analysis of the rate schedule in more than 15 years.

The sobering study, delivered by NewGen Strategies & Solutions to the council last week, showed that at the current pace, the water/sewer fund would be unable to keep up with expenses as soon as the end of the next fiscal year in October 2022.
