Final vote passed to delay water rate increase

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - City Council passed the final vote Thursday morning to delay the water increase until May.

The vote comes after a NewsChannel 11's report uncovered that some customer's March water usage would be billed at the new, higher rate scheduled to take effect April 1st.  We alerted you and city council members, who called Monday's special meeting to amend the rate change ordinance.

The amended rate change ordinance state that bills dated on or after May 1st would be calculated using the new higher rates. That would ensure March usage is not charged at the new rate.  It also states bills already issued would be re-calculated and adjusted.

The fiscal impact of this change is $639,417 for the water fund and $537,891 for the waste water fund.
