The Town of Riverview adopted it’s 2018 operating budget last night. Some highlights: The tax rate isn’t changing…but water & sewer rates are going up 3.43%…it’s going to cost you almost $30 more next year to turn the tap on and flush your toilet. There’s going to be a reconfiguration of the Gunningsville Bridge and Coverdale Road intersection…that’s to help ease the current traffic situation and they’re thinking ahead to when the Causeway is closed for a bit in 2020. Riverview will also be putting money into more upgrades at the Byron Dobson Arena and Mill Creek Nature Park.
