The Texas City City Commission on Wednesday voted unanimously to approve, on final reading, an ordinance revising the city’s water and sewer rates.

The new rates for sewer will be $4 for 1,000 gallons or less of water usage, and $4 per each 1,000 gallons after. Water rates included minimum rates based on meter size, with 5/8-inch meters billed at a minimum of $8.75 and 3/4-inch meters at $9.43, with 3,000 gallons included in the monthly minimum bill.

Pasture and residential water users exceeding 3,000 gallons will be billed $4 for up to 9,000 gallons, $6 for 10,000 to 24,000 gallons and $8 if they exceed 25,000 gallons.

The revision also included that water and sewer rates will be reviewed every three years.

The city commission voted unanimously to amend the city’s FY2017 Budget to appropriate $110,000 from the unassigned fund balance in the Hotel/Motel Tax Fund to be used for building maintenance at the Texas City Museum.
