New Water Rate Increase Draws the Ire of Online Comment

To All COLA LO Members,

 This week the LO Review published an announcement that the City Council had decided unanimously to approve a water rate increase of 25.5% early next year.  

Many citizens were unaware of the proposed increase and are now expressing disdain for the constant increases in water utility rates.  

The online comments also question the need for the massive LO-Tigard water partnership which is driving rate increases.   Its the largest capital project in the city's history.   

The article and comments can be found at:   Households to See Surge in Rates

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.    They will likely see it in their bills this spring.
