The Town of Boydton is looking at just what it will cost the town to operate the sewer line between the town and the new school complex on Wooden Bridge Road, some 6.9 miles always.

Speaking to the Boydton Town Council last week, Public Works Supervisor R.H. Parks reported that estimates placed the cost per 1,000 gallons from the school to the town’s water plant at between $6.12 and $8.16. 

The figure, he told members, would not cover what it would cost the town to process the waste water. At those costs, he said, processing the waste water would  cost the town money.

Currently, Boydton charges in-town customers $2 per 1,000 gallons. Out of town customers are charged $10 per 1,000 gallons.

Although Mecklenburg had been discussing paying $4,700 each month to the town, Parks suggested that the $4,700 figure should be a minimum charge. Or, he suggested, Boydton could consider setting a higher rate 

for commercial customers such as the school.

Parks told the group that he offered the information for discussion and to better prepare members for future discussions with Mecklenburg.
