Tucson Water increase will be finalized tonight

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Residents will find out this evening how much more they will be paying for water in Tucson.

The city council will decide on new rates and fees tonight.  No matter what that Tucson water bill will be going up.  How much is the real question.  The answer is not clear yet, but residents can get some sort of idea, the estimate is $3.  Not a lot, but more than residents have paid before. 

Tucson Water says costs are going up and it needs to increase revenue from somewhere. 

There are numbers of ways to get there; for the average customer their bill will go up anywhere from $2.91 to $3.68 per bill.  Tucson Water has held a series of public forums over the past few weeks.  Officials are taking all of the feedback to the council, who will make the final decision this evening. 

The council meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. tonight.
