The fee to rent the local performance hall, and base charges for sewer service, could both change in the city of Bridgeport.

The city council will consider the items at its meeting Tuesday.

During its meeting June 3, council members expressed interest in amending the current sewer rate ordinance to allow prior account to be used in the event the customer moves to a different location within the city.

The proposed ordinance was drafted to amend the sewer rates charged to allow customers to use their prior history in the event a water average is not available at the customers’ request.

  • $150 for 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.;
  • $200 for 4 p.m. to midnight;
  • $300 all day.

In addition to the June 3 meeting minutes, the council will consider in the consent agenda appointments to the economic development corp. board, library board, Main Street board, parks board, planning and zoning commission and stagecoach committee.

As the zoning board of adjustment, the council will also hear a request for a special exception for a porch that does not meet the rear yard setback requirement.
