To All COLA LO Members,
The article is unique and can be found at: Portland's High Water & Sewer Rates.
Unfortunately for us many don't know that Lake Oswego is currently the second highest city in the area in terms of water and sewer rates. That makes Lake Oswego one of the most expensive small towns in the nation for water! Incredible!
The council voted recently to increase water rates another 12.5% effective July and the current plan is for another 12.5% next year and 5% for the following years. At those rates LO may be the most expensive small city in the nation for water and sewer.
Its time our new council begin to address this issue in earnest. Can we really afford to be #2 right behind Portland in a state where it rains seven months out of the year?
