The Helix Water District voted to raise prices for its customers after a heated public meeting Wednesday night.
The hearing drew a small but vocal crowd to the district’s headquarters in La Mesa.
On the agenda was a proposal to raise water rates 4.7 percent starting November 1 for the district’s service area which includes La Mesa, El Cajon, Lemon Grove, and parts of Spring Valley,
Lakeside and Santee.
The price hike would work out to just over $2 a month for an average user.
