City Council members are expected to hold first reading of an ordinance to increase water rates by 10 percent when they meet later today.  Officials say the city was in the process of borrowing money from its general fund to keep water and sewer projects going, thanks to a lack of revenue.

Water consumption han’t been what city officials had projected.
