The city has several water projects slated, including the Phase II upgrade of the water treatment plant. Those projects and the shortfall of funds based on current water revenue means the city must look at all means possible to find the money needed for this crucial service. Norman voters could be looking a a rate increase proposal in the near future.
A public budget hearing is slated for May 27, and the council will consider the final budget for adoption on June 10.
