Orleans Sewer Betterment Update
Selectmen are moving closer to determine the betterment bylaw to be placed on this year's town warrant. The option recommended by the selectmen is based on water usage. The cost-share breakdown under this scenario would be $8,408,373, or 64.7 percent, for non-residential properties and $4,593,790, or 35.3 percent, for residential properties. The chosen method will require town meeting approval and a special act of the state legislature.
