Notice of Rate Increase: Town of Eureka

This is to give notice that effective June 1, 2020, rates for sewer services will increase by $1.50 per 1,000 gallons. The increase is necessary to offset the rate increase levied by the Town of Fremont for sewer charges. If you have any questions, please contact or (919) 814-4300.

Sewer System Reminders

 Please "Think Before You Flush"! Every day, thousands of unsuitable items are flushed down toilets instead of being put in the trash. This can bring about costly damages that can increase sewer rates. See the flyer below for important reminders of items that should not be flushed.

Emergency Grant for Sewer Operations

North Carolina Session Law 2019-226 authorized the Department of Environmental Quality to provide grants to the Local Government Commission (LGC) on behalf of certain local governments to cover deficits in the operating expenses of a public water or wastewater system. Units of local government are eligible for emergency grants only if the General Assembly has suspended their charter or if the LGC has assumed control of their financial affairs. 

Under this new law, the State Water Infrastructure Authority approved $200,000 in emergency funding for Eureka on September 25, 2019.

Financial and Budget Information​

Please note that the tax rate for 2019-2020 is 75 cents per hundred, not 70 cents per hundred as presented at the September 3, 2019 meeting in Eureka.  The rate of 75 cents per hundred is the same rate as the prior year and does not represent an increase; the rate was simply reported incorrectly in the materials and presentation on September 3.  All documents below have been updated to correct the rate to 75 cents.  We apologize for any confusion; feel free to contact Sharon Edmundson at the email address below if there are further questions.
