Reading Water Authority plans fund to fight suit over recycling fees

RAWA plans escrow account

READING, Pa. - The Reading Area Water Authority is taking action as a fight over recycling fees heads to court.

The authority said it plans to establish an escrow account to ensure that customers are protected in the event that the fee is struck down in court.

Five city residents are suing over the fee, saying it's illegal because recycling programs are supposed to be funded with state grants.

The city said the grants don't cover the entire cost of the program.
