Phoenix is planning to maintain the same water and sewer rates for single-family homes in 2014.
It marks the second year that the Water Services Department is not proposing a rate hike for Phoenix homes.
City officials report that the average single-family residential water bill will remain at $37.75 per month, and the average residential sewer bill will remain at $20.71 per month.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton gave credit to water services employees for "a remarkable job managing our water and sewer systems."
