Local On Monday, the city council held a special session to discuss water rates.Residents have complained of water bills running hundreds of dollars above normal. Council members voted to maintain the current water rates for those who use less than 6,000 gallons a month and lowered the rates for residents who use more water. But the vote over how much residents will pay in the future didn’t at all address why some residents have seen a sudden spike costing, in some cases, hundreds of dollars more that months prior. Two men were called up during the meeting’s public comment period. Each praised the efforts of the city council during their allotted time. Others who showed up had intended to speak but were not allowed. Fed-up residents say they plan to petition to recall the mayor in connection with the hikes.
