utility rate hikes, which could raise bills
by as much as $1 million a year in some
districts and put some services at risk,
officials said Wednesday.

called a "big user," managers weren't too

precautions they had taken for Y2K.

"It's really similar: What goes onto
emergency generators and what doesn't,
what could cause problems with controlled
storage, what to do about tissue samples
and laboratories," she said. "The plan
book was already written. It's business
as usual."
