This evening the City Council will get an opportunity to see whether or not they want to adopt a water rate increase.
People around the community say that as long as the money is going to benefit the community one way or another then they’re all for it.
One Yuma local says, “Nobody wants it, but sometimes things are necessary and you have to do it cause you gotta drink ya know.”
“As long as its not such a big increase that its going to hurt working class families then that would not be good.”
Some say paying more on any one bill is just too much especially with this tough economy.
One Yuman adds, “We are already paying enough with everything and everyday APS has high prices and the water and everything! Everyday the prices keep going up.”
