Elmendorf increases water rates
ELMENDORF -- Because of rising fees from the San Antonio Water System (SAWS), residents here will be paying more for water.
City Administrator Cody Dailey said after the Dec. 13 meeting of the Elmendorf City Council that the city had been absorbing SAWS’ increases for the past four years. As a result, the council voted to raise the city’s rates.
“In [the past four years], SAWS’ rates to us have gone up 18 percent,” Dailey said. “Our new rates will go up 10 percent. Therefore, a minimum monthly bill inside the city limits of $33.60 -- which includes the first 3,000 gallons -- will go up $3.36 to $36.96.”
Tap fees for meters “over 1 inch” also will increase, he said.
Also during the meeting, the council voted to file a petition with Bexar County related to the title of the Elmendorf City Cemetery. Dailey said the land is still owned by the Elmendorf Cemetery Association, which is a defunct entity.
In other business, the council rejected a request from Jose Esquivel for the city to issue a variance for placement of a manufactured home. A city ordinance requires all newly located mobile homes to be less than five years old, but Esquivel’s unit is older.
