WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A neighborhood meeting was held in the Westlake Recreational Center Wednesday evening to talk about the water debate in Westlake.

The city of Cleveland is saying customers have a obligation to their contract and threatening the residents with higher bills if they leave the service. 

The threat of a higher bill was sent to all Westlake residents by the city of Cleveland Water Department. The city said if the city of Westlake wants to leave at the end of its contract it needs to start collecting $291, every three months to pay for its share of infrastructure improvements.

The mayor of Westlake trying to ease the minds of residents in Westlake who attended the meeting. 

"We're not going to make a decision that is going to cause you or anyone in our community to have to pay more," Mayor Dennis Clough told residents Wednesday evening. 

The argument over the contract is already in the courts, but a long way from being decided.
