By Times staff writer

PINELLAS PARK -- The good news is the property tax rate will remain the same under the $52-million operating budget that the City Council passed Thursday.

The truly bad news is sewer fees will skyrocket by about 41 percent as the city passes increased costs from Pinellas County directly to residents.

The average user of 6,000 gallons per month will pay $9.03 more for service. Garbage rates also will rise by about 2.5 percent, from $9.69 per month to $9.93 per month.
