Does Regional Cooperation Include Fighting Water Rate Increases?

It's a good bet that water-seeking suburbs will attack Milwaukee water rate increase proposals even while talking a good game about regional cooperation.

The burbs will want water at the cheapest price possible - - whether it's a per-gallon charge or a service or tax base sharing fee arrangement - - reducing "regional cooperation" to little more than propaganda.

It would seem "regional cooperation" is one of those terms trotted out by Milwaukee, the inner/outer suburbs, or the surrounding counties when they want something from the other(s).

Imho it is a red flag phrase that means whatever follows is a load of spin and bs.
