Last week, the Hazlehurst City Council discussed at length the budget for the Water and Sewer Department, noting that the new one is $2,018,445 over last year’s $1,552,000. Deputy Clerk Lorrie Williams and Stone explained that part of the budget issue is overdue water bills stemming from the pandemic, which caused a drop in revenue. Stone then added that the City will have to either increase its water bills to make up for lost revenue, increase ad valorem taxes, or decrease expenses.
