The Tulare County supervisors voted four-to-one approving the measure. People who live in the unincorporated areas of Tonyville and Tooleville protested the increase, so their water bills won't go up. However, people in Yettem and Delft Colony will see a hike of about 10%.

Supervisors say the county is still fronting a lot of the water and sewer costs for most of the low income communities.
