Expect to dig deeper in your wallet the next time you pay your water bill.

Late Thursday night, Fresno City Council members voted to approve a $410 million water rate project.

Prior to the vote, during the 4–hour meeting, Fresnan's voiced their opposition to the measure.

In the end, it passed by a vote of 5 to 2, with council members Sal Quintero and Clint Olivier voting against the proposal.
