Tucson Water will host four town halls to present three options for proposed fiscal year 2014 water rates and fees that have been recommended by the Citizens Water Advisory Committee (CWAC).

The four town halls start at 5:30 p.m., with the presentations on rates, fees and options beginning at 5:45 p.m. City staff and CWAC members will be available for questions following the presentations.

The Citizens Water Advisory Committee (CWAC) is appointed by the Mayor and Council and the City Manager’s Office to annually review the revenue requirements of the water system. CWAC members spend several months of the year reviewing Tucson Water budget proposals and developing rate and fee recommendations.
A public hearing is scheduled during the Tuesday, May 21, Mayor and Council meeting. Following the hearing, Mayor and Council are expected to vote on adopting a new water rate schedule.
