So which is it?

The headlines disagree on what happened yesterday when the city council took up the DWP's request for an 11% rate hike.

Times: 11% Water Rate Hike to Get More Study - The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday delayed approving an increase in water rates, putting off a vote for a week while agreeing to hire an outside auditor...

Daily News: Big Hike for DWP Passes - The City Council gave preliminary approval Tuesday to an 11 percent water rate hike...

Breeze: Council disfavor delays vote on DWP rate hike - The City Council moved Tuesday to postpone a roll-call vote on the controversial proposal...

Whatever. The bottom line is that the rate hike hasn't happened and won't unless it is approved in another vote by the council.
