Water and Sewer Rates Will Still Increase In Bowie

Posted: Updated:
Some residents in Bowie didn’t get their wish to have recently approved sewer rakes taken back on Tuesday night.

Bowie resident Ross Hamilton sent a request to rescind the ordinance increasing water rates and the ordinance raising sewer rates.

City Manager Ricky Tow said, “They're just looking at the numbers and trying to make them self-sustain themselves, with all the mandates and all that come down on them.  It's just the cost of doing business.”

Back in May, council members voted to go forward with a water and sewer hike.  The rate increase will start in October.  The rates will increase each October over the next three years.
