PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Public comment could get heated Thursday night when Portland City Commissioner Nick Fish and the Portland Water Bureau will talk about the rate hike scheduled to take effect July 1.

The proposed 4.8% sewer and water rate hike is not sitting well with many who live and do business in the city.

The city utility rate review lets the public have direct contact with PWB, the Bureau of Environmental Services and Commissioner Fish.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Montgomery Park on NW Vaughn.

KOIN 6 News will have more information later in the day.
