BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – The Brighton City Council voted unanimously to cut water and wastewater rates. They will be reduced by 8% starting next year.
The action comes after high water prices divided the city. The Brighton City Council fired its city manager after revealing the city overcharged residents as much as $800 on their water bills.
He claimed the city had millions of dollars in a slush fund. The council argued his firing had nothing to do with the water rates.
