From The Yuma Pioneer (Tony Rayl):

The council went ahead and moved forward with the proposed sewer rate increase. Sanchez again offered a 33 percent increase, going from the current rate of $12.50 to $16.60. It would raise approximately $90,000 per year in new revenue. Ebert said the increase definitely is needed due to the new sewer truck and some other work that needs to be done. He made a motion to approve the first reading of the ordinance, including making it effective May 1. It was passed on a 6-1 vote with Seward voting against…

The council will have a public hearing regarding this proposed increase at its March 16 meeting, after which it will vote on the second reading of the ordinance.
