CAPE CORAL, Fla.- There is relief in Cape Coral among a dozen church congregations.
They were concerned they would have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Cape's new water and sewer project. In the past, the churches got a break. And Wednesday night, Cape Coral city council voted to keep it that way.
One reverend says the vote saved her small congregation from shutting down.
"I feel they made the right call and their comments themselves just made us feel like they thought it through, they listened to us, made us feel like they made a good wise, thoughtful decision," said Rev. Lori Cotten with Hope United Methodist.
Council members voted 6-2 to give the churches the break.
