Banning Considering Water Rate Increase

The City Council in Banning is considering increasing water and sewer rates in a way that answers one of my questions, and this is, can a water district schedule a series of rate increases or does it have to approve each rate increase, one at a time? Banning is considering raising water rates 30% this year, then 7% each year after that until 2014.

It also looks like Banning charges everyone a flat rate per month, regardless of actual water use. That's not only an open invitation to water waste, but it makes it very challenging to stay solvent.
