Tulsans may have to start paying more each month for utilities.

The Tulsa Metropolitan Authority is proposing a 7 percent increase for water and a 9 percent increase for sewer.

If the increases are approved by the City Council they will go into effect on October 1st.

The additional revenue from the rate increases would be used to pay down debt and fund maintenance projects.

In 8 years my rate has gone from 26.00 per month to almost 70.00, how much do they think people can pay? Where is the limit, everytime the city needs more money to foolishly blow they just raise our utility rates...can you say vote their asses out? I can!
