City to Consider Allowing ONCOR Electric Rate Hike


Before leaving for Austin, the mayor, along with the rest of the council heard from ONCOR about their request to raise residential electric rates 11.8 percent.

The council approved a resolution that puts that hike on hold for at least 90 days while city leaders from here and other ONCOR cities negotiate a rate.

"Consultants of the city of Wichita Falls and our partner cities that are part of the ONCOR steering committee to look at their rate requests, analyze the needs of the ONCOR organization and negotiate a possible lower rate increase," Jim Dockery, Deputy City Manager

The city could also fight this case in front of the Public Utilities Commission which is a state agency that can ultimately set the rate.
