Great Timing - you really should consider this "wonderful news". The recommended increase was more than twice that and was for multiple years. The City of Medina's water rates are very competitive compared to similar municipaliites in this area. I commend the city's administration and council for looking deeper at the city's budget for ways to avoid a larger increase. What are you looking at, less than a $1 increase to your utility bill?
By the way, you can't fire the finance committee; it's made up of the 7 council members. Even if you could, it would be chump change in relation to the $50 million City of Medina budget!

Alysia6, you obviously are well off. This city is a joke, it is mismanaged and they keep asking every homeowner to keep footing bills for thier mismanagement over years and now hit us when things are very rough financially. Your attack on mikey1098 tells me you must be connected somehow to a council member or a city employee. Maybe Mikey1098 was one of the kids they pushed thru the system by Medina High School. The fact you call someone an idiot tells me that YOU are at the queen of idiots.
