Water rates "will go up,” said Daniel Morgado, Shrewsbury town manager. When they will be raised, and by how much, is yet to be finalized. At the beginning of August, Morgado sent a memo to selectmen, asking for a review of the rate structure and and outlining how and why an increase was needed. Rates were last evaluated and restructured in 2008 and increases are now necessary to maintain provided water in an “appropriate fashion,” Morgado said.
