Water bills to increase $25.00

The Milford city council will meet in a called meeting on Tues Sept 8, 2009 to vote to increase residential water bills by $25.00 per meter in order to collect money towards paying back to the State of Texas over $300,000 it collected from traffic citations issued on I-35 over several years.

They had not kept just 30% of the revenue from I-35 tickets as required by law. The state audit shows that they need to repay over $300,000 because of this and intend to do it by raising water rates.
