City Council to decide water rate increase Thursday

LUBBOCK TX, (KCBD) - Your Lubbock water bill is going up. There's no question about that.  The question is how much and that's up to the city council on Thursday. 

Ironically, under the leading plan, people who try the hardest to conserve water will see the highest percentage increase in their monthly bill.  That's because the base charge is going up much more than the charge for usage.  So, a single family residence using exactly 10,000 gallons per month might expect to pay about 43 percent more.   

Below is a chart of the proposed base rate increase and further down is the proposed usage rate increase.
