The company says it is a way to help pay for more than $500 million in infrastructure improvements.

People in the Wabash Valley are wondering where the money is really going.

"Especially with the problem we're having with the flooding in the streets. You think with the sewer increase, that we would have better drainage. At times you feel like there is...and at times you feel like there's not. An increase to me is like, I want to be able to see where my money is going," Schelia Romanelly told us.
