A public hearing on a proposed sewer rate increase for the Lubeck Public Service District will be held in the Wood County Commission offices in the county courthouse on Thursday, December 28, during the commission's regular meeting.

Commission President Blair Couch says that time was settled on at the commission's Thursday meeting after discussion of several times for the hearing, including evening times.

The Lubeck PSD November 30 approved a 14.8% sewer rate increase after hearing comments from residents, all of them against the proposed rate hike.

The commission Thursday also awarded a South Dakota firm, Zuercher Technologies, a contract for upgrading the 911 center's computer assisted dispatch system.

The CAD,.as it is known, is used in helping 911 dispatchers determine the exact location of emergency calls.

And the commission approved awarding a "Spirit of Wood County"
honor to local realtor Larry Fought. who has organized discussions on drug abuse at various churches and other organizations
