Dec. 5, 2013Councilman Valenzuela Headshot for News with Caption

"Today, the city of Phoenix Water Services Department announced that for the second year in a row residents will not see a rate increase on their city services bill, which includes water and sewer fees. There are many factors that contribute to ensuring the rate stays stable, including innovations and efficiencies within city processes and efforts by our residents to manage water usage and help keep our sewer system running smoothly - by limiting what we send down the drain. This is a time when most of us are watching our spending and trying to keep our household budgets in check - this is on the top of mind for myself and many of my Council colleagues. I commend our Water Services staff for protecting one of our most valuable natural resources, managing it wisely and ensuring that our residents have safe, clean water at a price they can count on."
