Toledo city council's utilities committee held a public meeting Monday afternoon to discuss proposed changes to the water billing system.

The meeting was also to discuss proposed changes to the water deposit policy, and an upcoming water affordability study.

The administration has told council that the proposed change to implement a monthly billing system for all residential customers would cost the average customer an additional $94 per year.

"[I don't think] the proposals are unreasonable," said Councilman Adam Martinez, who made the proposals. "But I understand there is a financial cost to it. And again, this wasn't to force the hand of the administration to do something, but to start thinking long-term and planning."
