The Frisco City Council voted Tuesday night to raise fees for water and sewer service.
The cost for water will increase from $11 to $14 for up to 2,000 gallons of use for residents in Frisco.
The matrix for water use of more than 2,000 gallons is also increasing. Sewer rates are increasing from $11 to $14 per bill, according to an analysis of city data.
Homeowners aren't the only ones affected by the hike. Businesses will pay anywhere from $2.27 to $92.83 more per month, depending on their water use.
The City Council also voted to increase fees for ambulance services, trash service, recycling pickup and other city services.
If you own a business and need the fire department to come out for a fire or a hazardous materials situation, prepare to pay a pretty penny. Services that used to be performed at no cost to tax-paying businesses will now come at a fee -- from the cost it took for the dispatcher to answer the phone call to $1,500 for the use of diagnostic equipment. The city will even charge a commercial address $10 if emergency crews have to use a flashlight.
The changes are set to go into effect Feb. 1.
