Big increase to water rate no easy sell to City Council


WILLMAR -- Willmar City Council members say they want questions answered about a water rate increase of 9 to 10 percent a year over two years being proposed by the Willmar Municipal Utilities.

Council members would like to know why the utility did not enact smaller annual increases rat-her than wait two years before enacting a larger increase and they would like to know what the utility is doing to control costs.
