LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Los Angeles City Council committee delayed a vote Tuesday on whether residents should pay higher utility bills.

The committee is still expected to look at a proposal that raise sanitation rates 40 percent over the next five years.

The bill for an average family would rise from about $30 to nearly $42.

The city says it needs the extra money to modernize and maintain its aging sewer system.

    I’m not paying any increased rates. I already pay enough considering I HAVE PRIVATE pick up yet they bill be for services NOT RENDERED. I’d rather sleep in the dark. Let them disconnect all of my utilities.

    Are there any journalists left in broadcast news? This story, if you can call it that, proves there are none, only news readers. A “City Council committee…” – there are 20 committees and any one of five could be looking at this issue. A journalist remembers to cover, Who, What, When, Where and Why. All you covered was the “What” and “Why,” – thanks for nothing.

    NO! When they stop all free services to illegals I will consider it but not until then! I am sick of paying for other people.
