Water Rate Hike Possible
Last night city council voted 5 to 4, conditionally approving the process of raising taxes on water rates.
Even though last nights vote didn't increase rates yet, at least one council member thinks it was wrong to vote without knowing all the facts.
Dr. Michael Landeck, "The vote was an increase on numbers and projects, that really we do not know what they are at this point."
Rates were hiked back in 2006 in an effort to generate $400 million for projects that included securing a secondary water source and adding to the water purification system.
