SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Spartanburg City Council and the city's Commission of Public Works are in a standoff over $1.4 million after negotiations between the two sides broke down.

According to our news coverage partners at the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, city leaders say that residents could possibly see taxes increased and services reduced if the negotiations over the money are not settled. The newspaper reports that Public Works leaders say if the utility continues to make the $1.4 million payment to the city, customers will see their rates increase.

According to the Herald-Journal, CPW has made the city a percentage of its revenue since 1992, including the $1.4 million payment that the two side agreed upon in 2007. After five years, CPW notified city leaders that its agreement was ending in June 2013, and negotiations between the two sides have been at an impasse.
