WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS) – The Westminster City Council will vote on Monday on a plan to raise water rates for the city. The plan was met with criticism in September.

The city is proposing a net-average 10 percent increase to water rates. For about 88 percent of city residents, that means an increase of about $11 a month.

Many residents condemned the proposal at the last city council meeting and planned to fight it.
