City residents face higher water bills


From Friday's Blade and talked about on WSPD today.

Toledo-area residents face the prospect of higher water rates, while those who live in the city also could be on the verge of paying more for sewage service.

Under a rate-hike plan submitted yesterday to Toledo City Council, water rates would increase by 4.5 percent a year in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Sewer rates would increase by 9.9 percent a year during the same period.

5 days ago, I paid my property tax bill, which had increased by $100. Now I get to pay more for my H20 bill? Wonderful...

Does it seem odd to anyone else that the improvements being credited for the increases have been known for years, yet the increases are just being sought now?

Call me suspicious but I'm looking at hizzoner's $12Mil. hole in the budget as just a bit more than coincidental. . .
