Decatur City Council To Vote On Water Rate Hike

http://www.ci.decatur.il.us/watermanagement/hydromap.htmlThe Decatur City Council votes Monday night on a plan that, if approved, would roughly double the city’s water rates over the next three years.

The rate hike was proposed last month as a way to pay for development of wells or other sources to supplement Lake Decatur and improvements to the city’s aging water infrastructure.

City Manager Ryan McCrady says he believes residents support the plan because drought and water restrictions are fresh in their minds.  McCrady spoke with Peter Gray about the city’s primary water source, Lake Decatur, and the unique challenges a town with big industry faces during a drought.
