Norwalk city council members had a number of questions regarding the proposed discount on water and sewer rates to big business at a recent work session.

The current proposal is businesses that use more than 750,000 gallons per month would receive a 50-percent discount once they reach that 750,000 plateau.

"We need to do things that set us apart from other communities," Mayor Rob Duncan said.

"I don't think anyone up here is against economic development attempts," Councilman Chris Mushett said. "I don't want us to crush under the weight of our own abatements."
