CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Cape Coral churches are learning if they'll have to pay full price for a project that would hook properties up to city water, sewer and irrigation. A vote was expected on this matter two weeks ago, but the city could not make a decision.
Pastors are concerned they'll have to pay full price for the utilities expansion project, possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars. They're afraid it's going to hurt their level of service.
When a previous project like this happened, in the 90s, a group of churches reached a settlement with the city, agreeing they'd get a discount, in part for what they do for the community
But as this city council moves forward with the new project in the Southwest 6 and 7, that discount is potentially no longer on the table.
Almost a dozen churches could be affected by the decision.
