City water rate changes part of proposed budget

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock City Council on Thursday takes up a big change to local water bills.  Mayor Glen Robertson proposed the idea that those who conserve water should get a price break and those who are less frugal should pay more. 

If approved, the monthly meter fee will go down from $28 to $21 for those on a 3/4-inch meter.  Or, for those on a 1-inch meter, the monthly fee will go down from $46.74 to $35.06. 

However, the cost of using water per thousand gallons will go up. 

Block 1 goes from $2.67 to $4.00 - Block 2 goes from $4.29 to $5.46 – and Block 3 goes from $5.93 to $6.55. 

The new rater rate structure is part of the fiscal 2012/2013 budget.  Public comments will be heard Thursday at 6:15 PM in the City Council chambers.
