The City of Pella is increasing septage rates. The city is raising rates to $100 for those who live within the area and $200 for those who live outside the designated area. Finance Director Corey Goodenow says the rate increase is a result of many people from outside of the area bringing septage to Pella because the rates were low compared to other area cities. He says the new rates are still competitive with other cities and should help lower the stress on the treatment plant.
