A water bill battle is brewing between the City of Pecos and Reeves County.

Next week, city and county leaders will head to the state capital in an effort to reach an agreement.

The fight stems from the Reeves County Detention Center water bill.

Several years ago, the rates went up which sparked controversy over who should pay.

Mayor Alligood tells NewsWest 9, he's just hoping to find a way to settle the dispute.

The mediation will be next week in Austin.
