HUGO –– City of Hugo residents may have noticed a change on their water bills this month, that includes an extra $1 contribution or donation to the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
Members of the Hugo City Council voted last November to add a new line item to the monthly water bills to allow willing residents to make a $1 contribution to Parks and Recreation. The extra proceeds will be used for upgrading park facilities and city streets and electricity payments for the street lights throughout downtown Hugo.
This voluntary donation appeared on this week’s water bill, but was not clear on the breakdown of charges due to a temporary malfunction. City manager, Jeff Rabon is working with the computer programmer to develop a better format and breakdown so that the residents of Hugo will have a more clear understanding of how this voluntary program will work.
Anyone with questions is asked to contact the Water Department at 580.326.2344.
