DENHAM SPRINGS - The Denham Springs City Council voted Monday to raise the basic sewer fee rate 67 percent for a district south of the city.

The council also increased rates for water and gas both inside and outside the city.

Council members raised natural gas rates by 10 cents per hundred cubic feet for customers inside and outside the city, including some in East Baton Rouge Parish, which borders Livingston Parish.

Mayor Jimmy Durbin said the fee increases are necessary for the city to pay its bills.

Durbin said the gas and water increases are required because of maintenance and the cost of relocating utility lines for road projects.
