WHEREAS, the following facts exist:

 


The City’s largest utility customer, Eden Detention Center, will close as of April 30, 2017.



The City will encounter an estimated 2016-2017 budget shortfall of $95,000.


 

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  minimum monthly fee will increase by $20.00 from rates set in 2016  beginning with the April 2017 billing and shall remain for the remainder of the 2016-2017 budget year.

NOW, THEREFORE, be it ORDAINED by the City Council of the municipality of Eden, Concho County, Texas, that Water/Sewer Rates shall, Effective April 11, 2017  be charged for water provided to users of the City of Eden water system.
