Benton Harbor plans to reduce water rates by five percent in just two weeks.
According to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium the cut came after folks complained about price hikes.
Emergency Manager Tony Saunders says they hope the decease will help those who badly deserve financial relief.
Benton Township built it’s own water plant and St. Joseph Township customers east of the river now get water from St. Joseph.
A town meeting at city hall was scheduled at 6 p.m. Thursday night to discuss this lower rate in detail.
