Water rate hike now
untimely, mayor says

The proposal of the Bacolod City Water District to increase its water rates by 30 percent this year is untimely, Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said.

Water is very basic, so everybody is going to be affected, he said.

If at all Baciwa has to raise its water rates, it should not be 30 percent, he added. However, he also said, if possible, Baciwa should postpone its proposed rate increase. moremoremore
