From the NY Post:
One of the newest members of the city's Water Board is going to have a hard time rejecting the administration's request for a 14 percent hike in water and sewer rates next month, because Mayor Bloomberg is appearing at a fund-raiser for the nonprofit she heads just two weeks later.
The vote on what would be the third double-digit increase in water fees in as many years is scheduled for May 15.
Just 13 days later, Bloomberg is supposed to attend the annual fund-raising bash of the New York League of Conservation Voters at Chelsea Piers.
The executive director of the league is Marcia Bystryn, who was named to the seven-member Water Board on Dec. 17.
