Liberty Utilities Rate Change Protest
Liberty Utilities, which provides wastewater services to nearly 3,800 Smith County residents under the names of Tall Timbers Sewer and Woodmark Sewer, has recently announced a significant rate increase that will occur over the next several months. The first rate hike will go into effect on November 1, 2016 and the second will occur on March 1, 2017. Customers of single-family residences in Tyler that are served by Liberty Utilities will see their monthly rate increase from $27.75 per month to $96.38 per month after the final increase next March.

Payment Kiosk Now Open
In a progressive effort to give customers as many options as possible to make payments on their water utility bill, the City of Tyler Water Business Office has installed an electronic kiosk in the place of their previous drive-thru payment window. The new kiosk offers 24/7 access to water utility customers with the ability to accept check, money order, credit/debit cards and cash payments. Those choosing to pay with cash should be aware that no change will be given.

Due to the installation of the electronic payment kiosk, there has been a reversal in the flow of traffic at the drive through window. See map at right. Traffic will enter from Border Avenue and exit onto Locust Street. This will put the driver's side window against the wall of the Water Utilities building where the kiosk is mounted.

For more information, citizens may contact the Water Business Office at (903) 531-1230.

Capital Improvements Program
A Capital Project is a project that helps maintain or improve a City asset, often called infrastructure. Capital projects can include:
1) new construction,
2) the purchase of new equipment,
3) the maintenance of existing equipment or
4) the expansion, renovation, or replacement of an existing facility.

Tyler Water Utilities has a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that identifies capital projects and equipment purchases for Tyler Water Utilities and provides a planning schedule for the next 10 years. Examples of TWU capital projects may include the construction of a new water line, the replacement of an existing sewer line or the purchase of a new piece of equipment for a water treatment plant.

Tyler Water Utilities is a self-funded operation. All capital projects done by Tyler Water Utilities are funded through billing revenue and/or through the sale of revenue bonds. Tyler Water Utilities does not receive money from City sales tax.
