Lubbock City Council approves storm water fee increase

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Local residents and businesses will see a monthly fee increase in their water bills in October. 

On Thursday, the City Council approved a storm water fee increase. For residents, it will go from $6 to $9 per month, but businesses can expect their fee to go up nearly $20 per month. "There's a situation where some folks out there are going to see as much as roughly a $500 increase annually because of this. That's unnecessary and highly regretable," says Councilman Todd Klein.

Although some council members were against the fee, others say its necessary to pay for the additional $10 million a year to go toward street maintenance.
