BALTIMORE — Baltimore's City Council President wants the city's spending panel to delay a water rate increase for city residents.

That increase is scheduled to begin in July.

But Nick Mosby says any increase should be put on hold because of the pandemic and issues with the city water department mentioned in an inspector general report.

That report found more than 20 thousand water meters in the city and county have faulty equipment.

The mayor's office says he's currently reviewing Mosby's request.
