    What is the justification for this? Our rates are high enough, stop increasing the rate or families will start to relocate. The city wants to grow, I get that but increasing the cost of living isn’t going to help. Our taxes and fees are crazy high now and it keeps getting worse.

      The City has expanded enough that a new Water Treatment Facility is needed to keep up with the growing needs of the city. Thus, water rates are what cover the expenses of the expansion of a new Water Treatment Plant.
