Councilors to Discuss Tax Hike, Rate Increase, and Hunting Leases

    You can voice your opinion about a suggested tax hike and water and sewer rate increases during tomorrow's Wichita Falls City Council meeting.
    Chief Financial Officer Jim Dockery says the propose tax increase is about one cent more than the current tax rate.
    He says the average customer would pay just more than $1 more per month for water services and less than $1 for sewer services.
    Also during the meeting, councilors are expected to discuss proposed hunting leases.
    And if they approve those leases, they'll award them to the highest bidder.
    Officials say they receive 38 bids for three properties in Clay County near Lake Arrowhead and two in Archer County near Lake Kickapoo.
    Councilors will also discuss proposed changes to the drought contingency plan.
    Those changes would affect the way you can use water and how much it would cost you to use that water if the city goes to Stage Three water restrictions.
    Officials say that could happen at the beginning of next month.
    Public hearings are scheduled so during city council meetings for tomorrow and Sept. 11 at 8:30 a.m.
