Residents in sunnyside are going to see an increase in their utility taxes starting this new year.

Council members voted in favor of the 2013 budget 6 to 1 on Friday -- the budget includes raising the utility tax from 6 percent to 18 percent.

That means a person with a 100 dollar utility bill will have an 18 dollar tax on it.

The city is currently facing a budget deficit of about 2 million dollars.
