The Bonner Community Food Center’s hefty two-month sewer bill won’t be lowered—at least not yet.
The Sandpoint City Council voted Wednesday against lowering the nonprofit’s sewer bill for the second time. The decision followed a rare proposal to rescind the original ruling in November.
According to Sandpoint City Councilman Shelby Rognstad, it’s still possible the bill will be retroactively addressed. Before that can happen, however, members must develop a new policy to ensure fairness, he said.
