On Monday, September 13th, 2010, the Austin City Council raised water rates and property taxes in the midst of a recession, despite receiving thousands of petitions and phone calls. “Amid declining property values, Austinites will pay higher property taxes and utility bills under the 2010-11 budget the City Council passed Monday.” Austin American-Statesman.
Council member Randi Shade is the only member of the Wasteful 4 that is up for reelection next May.
