Council Approves Rate Increase for Water, Sewer Services 

(October 21, 2010) The Frisco City Council has approved rate increases for water and sewer services. An average residential utility customer will pay approximately $3.09 more – or 4.2% - per month for services. The new rates will go into effect in January, 2011. 

On Tuesday, October 19, the Frisco City Council voted unanimously to approve the rate increases as recommended by city staff. 

Currently, the average water customer uses 13,000 gallons of water per month.  Staff established 8,000 gallons per month, per customer for the comparison study.

The City of Frisco is passing along an increase of $0.12 cents per 1000 gallons imposed by the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) to its member cities.  Sewer rates increasing by $0.30 cents per 1000 gallons will be used to support increasing operational costs of the waste water treatment system. 

“We’re passing along the increased costs from the NTMWD and we’re trying to improve the financial stability of the Utility Fund, which has experienced a net loss for the past two fiscal years,” said Nell Lange, Assistant City Manager.

The commercial rates are also increasing, $0.12 per 1000 gallons for water and $0.30 per 1000 gallons for sewer service.
