LA VILLA, Texas (AP) - The school district in a small South Texas town will meet to decide whether to accept a city rate offer that would turn the water back on and reopen the district’s schools.

The La Villa school board will meet Thursday evening to consider options offered by the La Villa City Commission.

The commission decided Wednesday night offer a choice between a higher rate with less back payments due and a lower rate with more back payments due. Interim City Attorney Roel Gutierrez said both rates are below the regular rate.

The city cut water to the district after students left for holiday vacation, saying the district owes about $58,000 on its water bill because the district has refused to pay a higher rate set in December 2012.
