Editorial: Is water rate increase needed? You decide

(Continued)

Is the 47 percent fee increase really needed?

Like it or not, infrastructure must be upgraded periodically, and it can be expensive. Better infrastructure can help lure new industry to Anderson, which has an attractive water supply. That was one of the factors that persuaded Nestle to build a production and distribution facility here.

Better water pressure would be good, too, for local families. Still, many would choose to keep their extra $9 per month and sacrifice extra pressure.

What do you think? Let your city council representatives know ahead of the Feb. 13 meeting — or attend the 7 p.m. meeting at City Hall to make your voice heard.

Council meeting A proposed water rate increase will go before the Anderson City Council at its 7 p.m. Feb. 13 meeting in the council chambers at city hall.
