ECTOR COUNTY, Texas — The Ector County Utility District had a meeting Tuesday night to discuss new water rates for customers.
They talked about four different rate scenarios for rate changes. The one that was chosen does not raise any costs for customers across the board. It lowers the minimum charge for single-families by $10.
ECUD said the more they lower the rates, the less money they have to expand their system. The goal is less expense for water and the access to it.
The new rates will go into effect on August 27 of this year.
