Aiken residents will see a 10 percent hike in their water bills soon.

City Council members voted in favor of the increase Monday night to cover an estimated revenue shortfall of nearly $700,000.

The increase, which is scheduled to go into effect next month, should raise the average monthly water and sewer bill by about $4.50.
