When the Shelbyville City Council meets Thursday, it face a short agenda but one item with some punch.
Shelbyville Municipal Water and Sewer Manager Tom Doyle will ask the council for a rate increase of 3.85 percent.
This will be the first reading of the rate increase, and if it passes both readings, it would go into affect on April 1.
"It's the first time in two years we've asked for a rate increase," Doyle said. The last time, the increase was 3.5 percent.
