Mount Pleasant Town Council voted Tuesday night to increase stormwater utility fees and property taxes in order to improve infrastructure.
The stormwater utility fee will increase from $30 to $60 annually, while the property tax increase will cost $45 annually for the average sale price of a Mt. Pleasant home valued at $373,035.
The combined increase will be $75 per household.
Officials say the price adjustments will generate an estimated $3.25 million for capital improvement projects. These projects include maintaining stormwater pipes, roads and sidewalks, and pavement preservation projects.
Some of the funds will also go towards new road projects.
