Phoenix City Council Advances Water Rate Hike Plan

posted by Gregg Paul/Craig Martin - 

The push to raise water rates in Phoenix is moving forward after the City Council voted to advance the proposal to a December vote.  

The Phoenix Water Services Department is asking for the rate increase to provide one-point-five billion dollars for new projects and repairs.  If passed, it will raise water rates in Phoenix by 12-percent over the next two years.  The city says that would come out to an increase of around two-dollars and 35 cents a month for the average customer each of those years.  

The final vote is scheduled for December 12th.
