Phoenix Votes for $29 million Water/Wastewater Rate Fee Increase: Statement from Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccioPhoenix Votes for $29 million Water/Wastewater Rate Fee Increase: Statement from Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio<div class="ExternalClassE170B061609E41C2ADF8C5946C72123F"><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;">"The water and wastewater rate increases that were passed today by a 5-4 vote of the Phoenix City Council are horrible news for the residents of Phoenix. This is a sham and a scam. The same arguments were used in 2010 and it turned out to be a lie. The rate increases stopped when the public learned the truth.<br><br>This is placing an additional $29 million burden on our hardworking taxpayers, this comes right after a new $35 billion expenditure for rail.  <br><br>This is just one more tax and fee burden, and it's an increase that will hurt our poorest residents the most."</td></tr></tbody></table></div>1/6/2016 11:00:00 PMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
