Mayor Eisenberger addressed Council last night during the Water Rate debate with a simple message - Council must make the tough choices to address the City's infrastructure deficit now or citizens will pay more later.

In a six-minute address, Eisenberger pushed back against Councillors who were grandstanding on a plan to increase the City's water rates by 4.85% in 2017. Hamilton presently has the second lowest water rates in the GTHA, and our infrastructure deficit is more critical with each passing year.

I've posted full video of the address, and a transcript to The Public Record here:
