originally requested 75 percent more than that for three years Under Kennedys motion the typical water bill of would increase by about 60 cents in October and the typical sewer bill of would increase by about The next readings will be July 25 and Aug 8 at the next two consecu tive city council meetings Jeff Thompson NBU assistant gen eral manager said the water and sew er operations which are millions Qf dollars in the red need to start paying for themselves I just think its prudent to do this before we need an electric increase to make up for it later He said That would be a lot more morj

poor credit because of the sewer and water being in the red Bowers stated his reasons for his nay We just had appraisals returned and people are probably going to lose money in that were very much
