It is with great dismay that I read the discussion about the proposed water rate hike in the City of Las Vegas. As a county resident in the Ojitos Frios area, I have neighbors who have been on catchment systems for years due to their wells going dry. I have neighbors who have drilled new wells to find no water or to have them go dry again. I have neighbors who have lost their homes to foreclosure because they could not afford another water system. I have neighbors who haul water weekly.
