Water And Sewage Rates To Rise In Detroit
The cost of water and sewage services in Detroit will go up.
The city council approved a 7.5 percent rate hike.
It's expected to help fill a $27 million hole in the city's water and sewer department budget.
As of now, the services cost people about $71 a month.
The new increase works out to about $5 more each month.
The city is still looking into a water affordability plan for low-income customers.
