This plan took a lot of time and effort6. The next step would be for the city to find a source of where the $13 million annually would come from. Any suggestions?

How about asking the consumers of the water to pay for what they use? I believe this is the standard model for utility companies.

How about the existing welfare assistance and other charitable programs cover those who can't afford water? Why the need to disguise another entitlement as some type of 'affordability plan' that the utility must administer themselves?
