McKinleyville water rate increases and types of fire teams


Due to an editing error, a story headlined "McKinleyville Water Rates Set to Spike" in the Nov. 15, 2018, edition of the North Coast Journal contained inaccurate information about the rate increases. Beginning in January, customers will see a combined 7 percent increase to their water and sewer bills, meaning a customer currently paying $50 a month would see their bill increase to $53.50 in January. The rates will increase again every January through 2023 for a total increase of 26 percent for water and sewer customers.

Additionally, in the Nov. 15, 2018, issue, the story headlined "Changing the Landscape" incorrectly described the types of fire teams. The teams range from Type 1, which handle the largest and most serious fires, to Type 5, which handle relatively simple events. The Journal regrets the errors.
