Ask The Mayor
Q. - When I moved to Terrell in Sept
my water bill ran about $50. Now it is almost $100 a month. I teach school
and am rarely home yet my water/sewer bill is more than my electric bill.
Why was there an increase?
Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.
From the information that came in with your question, I see that you
live in an apartment complex in Terrell. Your apartment complex has
City water meters for each apartment building and the City bills the
apartment complex based on these meters. The apartment manager somehow
divides up the water uses and bills the apartment residents.
It is important for you know that we instituted a 7% rate increase for
water and waste water September, 2012. This is well below the increase
you have experienced. It would seem like this should be discussed with
the apartment manager.
