DELANO, Calif. - After wanting to raise water bills for a while, the City of Delano has followed through by voting on an increase today.
On April 29, the City of Delano said that the petition residents had signed did not contain enough signatures for verification.
Due to the lack of verified signatures, the city council voted for an increase.
The increase will begin July 1st and will consist of $15. Then, every year after that, it will increase by $10 until $65 is reached.
The city said they raised rates in 2012, but before then rates were not increased since the 80s.
