The second big issue was a water rate increase.
Alex Hammer represented a firm, Bartles Associates, helping the city perform this increase, because it has serious state regulations.
Not everyone approved of the increase.
Several people took issue with the way the city conducted the increase notification.
Ultimately, the county voted unanimously to approve the increase. So the water rate increase is approved.
If you live in Paso Robles, your water rates will go up April first.
