    Wichita Falls water and sewer rates are going up.
    Retail and residential water and sewer rates will increase by four-percent now that the new budget is adopted.
    City officials say the increase will bring in about $900-thousand revenue to the city.
    Wholesale rates will be reduced by 32-percent for surrounding cities that purchase water from Wichita Falls.
    The reduction will reduce revenue in the coming budget year by around a $1-million.
    And property taxes will increase by about one penny per $100 of property value.
    These changes take effect Oct. 1.
