A victory for Mayor Newberry and his fight against a proposed water rate hike from Kentucky American Water.
The Kentucky Public Service Commission has granted Lexington 'Intervenor Status' in Kentucky American's water rate case.
This means along with the Kentucky Attorney General, the city will represent the public's interest in the case.
The mayor began an electronic petition device urging people to join him in the fight against 37.5% rate increase.
Some 4,000 people have joined the online petition.
