Watch that Sprinkler!


If you use your sprinkler often, you should know that the city's summertime adjustment for sprinkler use (and swimming pools) is likely coming to an end.

Metro Council voted to reject a proposed 3.9 percent water rate increase last night for all customers, effectively reinstating the termination of the sprinkler adjustment policy that was a part of the original city budget announced in June. Mayor Purcell had temporarily reinstated the policy earlier this summer to give the council time to consider an overall rate hike instead of ending the adjustment.

The good news is that anyone who doesn't use their sprinkler much and who doesn't have a swimming pool won't face a rate increase this year. The bad news is for anyone who benefitted from the adjustment. More details in this City Paper article.
