Cadillac Water, Sewer Rates Going Up July 1

People in Cadillac will soon be paying a little more for their water and sewer rates. Monday night, the city council voted unanimously to increase prices by 4.5 percent. The city says that's about $2.50 more a month for the average person. They say the increase is relatively low compared to other cities in the area. Cadillac's director of finance says the money is needed to pay for improvements to the system. The new rates will go into effect July 1 and will show up on the August water bills.
