The Fall River Water and Sewer Saga

Fall River City Council Member Linda Pereria tells WSAR that the reason for her lone dissenting vote earlier this week regrading a hike in water and sewer rates for fiscal year 2021 was a concern for residents on fixed incomes who may have issues with absorbing what is being pitched as a 20 dollar a year hike. 


Pereria tells WSAR that she wants to go to various city departments to discuss ways of saving money, including using solar to lower electric bills. 


The final Fall River City Budget is not due till the end of July 2020, as the Commonwealth continues to look at revenue numbers that are not the numbers that were forcast six months ago.
