Gunter, Cook end terms with vote to repeal $14.95 maintenance fee


Mayor Daryll Gunter ended his four-year term on the Perry City Council addressing an issue he raised when he was first elected—the $14.95 sewer maintenance fee Pine Ridge residents currently pay for the low-pressure system which serves the neighborhood.

In a 3-2 vote, the council supported a motion from Gunter to do away with the maintenance fee and, instead, spread the maintenance fee cost “over all (sewer utility) users.”
