Canyon Commissioners to Reduce WTAMU Sewer Fees

Canyon City Commissioners will consider voting on Monday to reduce the current sewage fees for a single utility account at West Texas A&M University's main campus.

According to information from the City of Canyon, Commissioners are considering voting to change the sewage fees paid by the University. In a memo, it is stated that WTAMU is currently being charged at 58 percent of its water bill, which is standard for commercial water users consuming over 200,000 gallons per month. However, WTAMU is seeking that rate to be reduced to 40 percent of its water bill. According to the memo, the reason WTAMU is seeking this reduction is to compensate for the water that is evaporated from its cooling towers, as this water never enters the sanitary sewer.

Also, during Monday's meeting, Commissioners are considering voting to approve several rezonings and a request to establish a Massage Therapy Establishment at 1 Hunsley Hills Blvd, Suite 1.

The meeting will be held at 4:30pm, on Monday, May 21st, in the Commission Chambers of Canyon City Hall (301 16th Street, Canyon).
