Toledo City Council approves water, sanitary sewer rate increases

Toledo City Council Tuesday afternoon voted 8-4 to increase water rates 9 percent each year for four years.

Voting against the increase were Councilmen Steve Steel, Mike Craig, Rob Ludeman, and George Sarantou.

They also voted 9-3 to raise sanitary sewer rates by 3 percent each year through 2014.

Those voting against that hike were Councilmen Phil Copeland, Tom Waniewski, and Wilma Brown.

The Bell administration had sought the increases, saying they were long overdue and needed to fund the upkeep of the department.
