UTICA, N.Y. -- A 1.9 percent water rate increase in the Mohawk Valley doesn't seem to have many people concerned.

The Mohawk Valley Water Authority held a public meeting in Utica Monday and only one resident came.

The authority says the hike comes following a $300,000 increase in retirement payments, insurance and workers compensation.

New rates will mean $6 per year for a family of four.

The board will be voting on this year's budget next Tuesday. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
