Sachse residents could see a reduction in their water bills within a few months.
During a regularly-scheduled meeting, city council heard the results of a five-year water rate study. This also comes after a summer in which a handful of citizens complained of abnormally high water bills.
Rebecca Schafer of NewGen Solutions presented the findings and proposed a new plan.
Schafer reminded council of their decision in 2014 to increase rates, and found that the city is in a much healthier situation now. Her team discovered that of all the water used in Sachse, single-family homes consume 82 percent, multi-family homes consume 3 percent, commercial buildings consume 8 percent and institutions consume 7 percent.
