SNWA Holds Town Hall on Rate Hike

LAS VEGAS -- The tough economy is forcing the Southern Nevada Water Authority
to push up what customers pay for water.

The SNWA says it has tried to keep rates low, but it now
must hike rates. Under the proposed increase, the average family's monthly bill
would go up anywhere from $5 to $10 a month. Before the rate hike goes into effect,
the authority wants to hear from the public at a series of town hall meetings. The
first one is from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at Sedway
Middle School in North Las Vegas.

The water authority says the increase is needed just to keep
its daily operations going. The agency says the bulk of its money came from new
home and business hook-up fees. However, when the economy tanked those fees
dried up. New connection fees dropped 95 percent between 2008 and this year.
