SEELYVILLE, Ind (WTHI) - People in Seelyville will soon be paying more on their sewer bills..
After hearing public comment, city leaders voted to increase the town's sewer and water rates. The increase brings a new monthly minimum, along with a fee for storm water. It's a 19% increase, but that could change.
