Oahu water bills rising

The change to monthly billing adds $7.50 to each bill for processing fees.

Wednesday, the city council took notice.

The council asked the Board of Water Supply to explore other options before raising rates again.

“There is no easy way of getting water and as a farmer I know this it hurts the farmers biz I mean big time,” Waianae farmer Aunty Pali Grace.

Among the ideas for the Board of Water Supply is to increase revenue leasing out its property to private businesses.

The resolution passed through committee and onto another meeting with additional public testimony, before the city council’s final vote.
