ARCADIA, Ohio - The village is raising water rates for residents to help offset higher water bills from its main supplier - the city of Fostoria.
Fostoria began providing water to Arcadia last year. But Fostoria officials say they miscalculated the cost of providing water to the village. So Fostoria last month raised Arcadia's water rates by 13.5 percent.
Last night, Arcadia decided to pass some of the cost to residents. Beginning May 1, Arcadia residents will begin paying 5.4 percent more for water.
