Come to City Hall TODAY, May 18!

Finally! This is YOUR opportunity to tell City Council what you think of the Water Bureau's proposed rate increase of 12 -14% this year and 84.7% over next 5 years.  Tell Council to "press pause" on unnecessary LT2 projects.  

Concerned citizens must pack the house, so spread the word!

Time: 10:15 am on Wednesday, May 18
Location: Council Chambers, Portland City Hall
(City Hall is between Jefferson and Madison on SW 4th Ave)

PLEASE SHOW UP.   Testimony can be very brief (2-3 minutes). Identify yourself, state why you don't want water rates to go up  and please ask City Council to:

 1) Vote NO on water rate increases;
2) Call for a time-out on new LT2 construction projects;
3) Submit a new plan/schedule and
4) Apply to the State of Oregon for variances for Bull Run and reservoirs. 

If Council asks for "no repeat" testimony, stand strong and say your piece.  Your reasons and your personal story are your own.

If you bring written testimony, please bring 7 copies so it goes in the record.
