Water Fees Hurt Small Businesses and Nonprofits

A new water fee doubled - and in some cases, tripled - the bills for small businesses.  The Southern Nevada Water Authority raised fees to pay off about $3.3 billion in bonds.  Are higher fees based on meter size the best approach?  And will small businesses get any relief?  General manager Pat Mulroy and small business owners join us.  What are your thoughts on the water hikes?
