A plan to increase water and water meter rates in Laredo barely passed its first reading at the City Council Monday, and only with the caveat that changes will be made during the final reading at the next council meeting June 21.
Mayor Salinas actually cast a vote yesterday to break a tie. He actually had some important impact on an issue. Unfortunately he's raising our taxes in the process. Some might call 'em water fees; I call 'em taxes.
