Texas town offers schools choice on water bill

1/16/2014

MCALLEN, Texas (AP) - A South Texas city commission has decided to offer the town's school district two options to have water service restored to the schools.

The La Villa commission decision came Wednesday night after a state agency declined to ford the city to unilaterally turn the taps back on in Lavilla Independent School District schools.

The city cut water to the district after students left for holiday vacation. The city says the district owes about $58,000 on its water bill because the district has refused to pay a higher rate set in December 2012.

Interim city attorney Roel Gutierrez said Wednesday night that the district has a choice between two rates, both less than that specified in the rate ordinance.

School Superintendent Narciso Garcia declined comment until he sees the proposal.
