The City of Garden Ridge Water Company will be raising water rates by 14 percent. The City of Garden Ridge City Council voted unanimously on November 6, 2019 to approve the rate structure recommended by the Water Commission. The rates will be reflected on your upcoming January 2020 bill. The Water Commission reviewed the rate structure and considered the following: the Water Company be fully funded and separate from the General Fund, maintain existing quality, redundancy, and reliability, and maintain adequate financial reserves.
