ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Ashland City Council votes Tuesday night on a plan that would bring Medford water to town to help deal with a possible summer drought.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1i6YbwV ) Ashland would pay $3.7 million in system development charges and would raise water rates 10 percent a year for three years.

The water would be pumped through the Talent-Ashland-Phoenix waterline, which already stretches to Talent. It could be extended to Ashland by late summer.
