We should know by the end of the month if Lansing residents will have to fork over more money for their Board of Water and Light utility bills.
The BWL will hold public hearings on three rate hikes on January 20 with a possible vote by January 25.
The utility wants to hike rates 1.5 percent starting in March for operational costs.
It's also requesting a rate hike of 3.75 percent in October 2012 and October 2013.
BWL officials say the utility needs the money to help pay for its new plant in Reo Town.
