From The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (Amy Hamilton):

Councilors unanimously voted 7-0 during their public meeting to approve the city’s budget for next year, a plan which is $12.6 million more than the city’s 2018 approved budget…

Sales tax revenues have increased by an average 8 percent this year, thanks to a rebounding economy, that has revealed a tight labor market and a low unemployment rate, said Greg Caton, Grand Junction’s city manager…

Water rates will increase $1.14 a month from $19 to $20.14 for the minimum water usage of 3,000 gallons per month…

Step rate increases for water are based on a 10-year plan based on financial needs and intended to increase slowly over time instead of hitting ratepayers with large increases, the city said in its report.
