Constituents at Orchard City's Sept. 13 regular meeting raised questions about the town's new, higher water rates.

Gary Cape objected "strenuously" to the water rates. He said, "They are way too high." He advocated reverting back to the previous rates and/or cutting them back to a point where "the water fund is not in deficit."

Dave Stueck asked that town residents be given a reason by trustees for the recent water rate increases.

Later in the meeting, Trustee Dick Kirkpatrick explained that the town has seven water distribution lines in its system that present failure risks; five were installed over 50 years ago, he said. Also, the town is looking at up to $1 million to add a new filter cell at the treatment plant.
