Cola. Water & Sewer Rates to Go Up to Pay for Deferred Maintenance

Columbia's Choices: How did we get here? - Local Elections -
"The city of Columbia has siphoned nearly $79 million in the past 11 years from its water and sewer fund to pay for other parts of city government, records show.
That's about $7 million annually that could have gone to improve its aging water and sewer system but did not. Each year, $4.5 million went into the general fund, paying for basic city services such as police and fire protection. The rest of the money paid for the city's business and industrial recruitment efforts."
