2016 Water Rate Ordinance

Ordinance No. 2016-___

 

AN ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR A CHANGE IN WATER & SEWER RATES FOR THE CITY OF EDEN, TEXAS.

 

WHEREAS, the following facts exist:

 

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required that the City of Eden obtain compliance with regulated Gross Alpha and Combined Radium Levels for drinking water. 

 

A new treatment system has been installed for the removal of Gross Alpha and Combined Radium to bring the City into compliance with an increase in Maintenance and Operation cost of $120,000 annually.

 

Upon consideration of the proposed FY 2016-2017 Water/Sewer Rates (“Water/Sewer Rates”) attached hereto as Exhibit “A” and incorporated herein the same as if fully copied and set forth at length the City Council of Eden, Texas, finds as follows:

 

The water usage rates and minimum monthly fee will increase by 3% from rates set in 2014.

           

Based on prior water usage history and best estimates, the new water rates will generate approximately $18,000 in additional revenues to pay the O&M costs of the new plant as well as an additional $3,000 in Sewer revenue.  If the O&M costs are below the amount collected the excess funds shall be utilized for system upgrades or placed in reserve funds for future water system improvements or maintenance or other infrastructure needs. 

 

The Water/Sewer Rates provide a reasonable allocation of water charges among the users of the City’s municipal water system.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, be it ORDAINED by the City Council of the municipality of Eden, Concho County, Texas, that Water/Sewer Rates shall, Effective August 1, 2016 be charged for water provided to users of the City of Eden water system.
