The City of Danielsville has finally stopped losing money on its water department, according to the town’s newly released 2012 audit report.
“This was the city’s best audit in a long, long time,” mayor Todd Higdon told the council at its regular business meeting June 10.
City attorney Dale Perry agreed.
“The audit shows that the city lost $260,000 over the last four years (prior to 2012), but that it actually made $10,000 on water in 2012,” Perry said.
Higdon and Perry said that raising water and sewer rates last year to rates more comparable with other municipalities in the area was a big reason for the change.
“This was a first measure that was a step in the right direction,” Higdon said.
Adding the board of education on as a paying sewer customer as part of an agreement to upgrade the wastewater pond was also significant, they pointed out.
