Citizens of New Braunfels will start paying more fbr sewer and water in October if a motion passed by city council last night also passes on second and third readings.
Councilwoman Jan Kermady moved for increases of 3.65 percent for water and 6.45 percent for sewer for one year. The motion passed 4-2.
“My idea is to do something, but do it realistically,” Kennady said. Councilwoman Mary Serotd and Mayor Pro Tem Chris Bowers voted against the measure.
New Braunfels Utilities managers had originally requested .75 percent more durn that for three years. Under Kennady’s motion, the typical water bill of $17.35 would increase by about 60 cents in October and the typical sewer bill of $15.30 would increase by about $1.
The next readings will be July 25 and Aug. 8 at the next two, consecutive, city council meetings.
Jeff Thompson, NBU assistant general manager, said the water and sew
er operations, which sic millions pf dollars in the red, need to start paying for themaelvm.^"I Just think H*« prudent to do this before we need an electric increase to make up for it later on,” He said. “That would be a lot more mon-1 ey.“
Kennady pointed out that because of an influx of New Braunfels residents, the water company it losing only half as much as it was formerly losing.
Thompson said he doubt the growth trend would continue.
Councilman Urn Walker objected to all the excuses for the increase. “First cost goes up, then on top of that, we get another message that we have to make up for a bond rating,” he said. NBU said they had poor credit because of the sewer and water being in the red.
Bowers stated his reasons for hit nay. “We just had appraisals returned and people are probably going to lose money in that, we’re very much behind a recycling program that may bring a cost down the line and city taxes are just hanging on,” he said. “We are nickel- and dimc-ing our community to death.”
