Proposal Would Raise Sanitation Fees By More Than 70 Percent

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A new proposal would raise sanitation fees by more than 70 percent for Los Angeles residents.

A Los Angeles City Council committee has voted to raise sewer charges by about 77 percent over 10 years to provide funding for repairs.

The average family would pay about $23 more after 10 years.

The proposal is expected to go before the full city council for review Wednesday.
