LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Lubbock water customers might see some changes, if Lubbock City Council approves this week. Under the proposal, water service will be disconnected if a customer fails to pay for other utilities (not just water or electricity).
A reconnect fee will increase from $44 to $55. An after-hours reconnect fee will increase from $57 to $87. New residential customers will have to pay a deposit of at least $75, unless they can show a good payment history with Lubbock or another city. The cost of new water and sewer connections will go up to $400 each.
