From The Pueblo Chieftain (Tracy Harmon):
With revenue down and costs going up, the water fund started showing signs of a deficit last September, said Dori Williams, Florence city clerk. “City Council is talking about a water rate increase,” Williams said. Council has scheduled a public meeting at 6 p.m. May 2 in the council chambers (600 W. Third St.). “We could do a staged increase because we don’t want a real high rate increase. We don’t want it to go so high people stop watering their lawns and trees and we price ourselves out of a nice-looking city,” Williams said.
