On Thursday appeals court in Manhattan rejected a bill from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that would give small homeowners in the city a credit of $183 on their water and sewer bills. In their ruling, the panel voted 3-1 that the city's water board lacked a rational basis to award the credit to owners of 1 to 3 family homes. The panel added in a statement that the NYC Water Board had no basis to conclude that small homeowners were "more needy" than other property owners. de Blasio debuted the plan back in April 2016 in an attempt to cut annual water and sewer bills by 17 percent for over 600,000 homeowners in New York City.
