Cincinnati's City Council on Wednesday approved a 4 percent increase in water rates.
The increase is meant to fix the city's aging sewer system.
A 7.5 percent increase was originally proposed but council
voted that down last week. They compromised on four percent, but not all agreed
it was the best decision.
Yvette Simpson said a lower rate increase would only lead to
an even larger one next year.
"If you pass a 4 percent increase you'll pass be passing an
11 percent increase next year. So no one can say next year we're surprised when
the recommendation comes with 11 percent," Simpson said. Water and sewer rates
have increased almost every year since 2005,
according to the city.
Other council members discussed the possibility of bottling
and selling Cincinnati water to fund repairs to the sewer system.
The rate raises for Greater Cincinnati Water Works customers
in six months.
