A majority of the Bloomington City Council is in favor of a quick increase in sanitary and storm water sewer rates.

At a committee of the whole meeting on Monday, most of the council said they want to see a more drastic hike next fiscal year. If the proposal passes, both sanitary and storm water rates would cumulatively increase by 44 percent. The average household would go from paying $13.85 to $19.91.

Alderman could vote as early as next week to decide when the higher rates would kick in.
