Water rates could be on the rise at the beginning of next year for Midlanders.
Today Midland City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance that would raise water and wastewater rates beginning in January of next year.
The City’s water and sewer services are self-funded, meaning they generate their own revenue through providing water and wastewater services to Midlanders in order to break even on the cost of infrastructure and delivery.
The accompanying graphic shows in detail how individuals will be fiscally impacted by this new ordinance.
A second reading will be held on December 17, 2013.
