Will there be loss of local control over water?

Absolutely not. The City will continue to provide oversight, leadership and direction of NMB Water from City review/audit staff, NMB Water executive management, the City Manager’s Office, review by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), and ultimate control by the Mayor/City Council. This includes determination of all current/future water and sewer rates and fees.
