It looks like Atlantic City residents will soon be paying more for water.
The Atlantic city Municipal Utilities Authority says that over the last several years their expenses have risen, however their water sales have shown a steady decrease since 2006. Although the water demand did go up in 2012, an increase the A.C.M.U.A attributes to the opening of the Revel Resort.
The utilities authority is proposing a 2 percent increase which they say will result in a $5.84 increase per year per average household.
The ACMUA is holding a public hearing on their proposed 2013 budget at their offices tomorrow morning at 10 am.
