JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - If you live in the City of Jackson your water-sewer bill just went up.

The City Council voted to increase the cost of water Tuesday. 

Water bills go up 12.72% and your sewer bills increase 5.91%. 

Jackson residents will see a $5 per month hike reflected on your bill.

This is effective immediately.

Officials say the increase was necessary to support the water-sewer system.

How much your water bill goes up, depends on how much water you use.

Officials haven't made a rate increase adjustment on water and sewer since 2004.

Councilman Jeff Weill was the only member to vote against the increase.
