No Rate Hike for Utility Customers Yet

There is no electric bill rate hike for El Paso utility customers, at least not yet. The city council voted unanimously yesterday not to have a rate hike go into effect for El Paso Electric users. The rate increase is now postponed from the original date of July 6th. Council members will meet to come up with the new rate on October 4th, which if approved will become effective November 3rd.
