Public meetings on water rates and urban farming

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two public meetings are being held today - one a chance for the public to give their opinion and the second a chance to find out about increases in a utility bill.

The City of Tucson is considering a possible code change for urban agriculture. This change could include farmer's markets, community gardens and those keeping small farm animals in their yards.  This meeting is happening Tuesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Sentinel Building on North Commerce Park Loop. 

Tucson Water is also holding a meeting this evening.  They will be presenting information and answer the public's questions about water rates, service fees and operating costs.  Customers will also learn about investing in technology to increase efficiency and conserve water for the future. 

The water meeting will be held at El Rio Neighborhood Center on Speedway from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  For those not able to attend the Tucson Water meeting this evening, there will be two more on Wednesday and Thursday night.
