Tuesday, we will have the opertunity to vote on a waste water rate increase. We are the only city in the state that requires such a vote. I have never know the voters of Norman to reject a rate increase with a clear purpose for the funds, which are truly needed.
This vote is not just about meeting water quality standards but it is also for increase capacity for the plant. It is the first major expansion in decades and we have reached the limits of this treatment plant.
The need for a bigger better plant is clear, the uses of the funds have also been explained in detail. I trust that we will step up to the plate and support the rate increase. Please make the effort to vote Tuesday November 12th.
