TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Electric rates in the city of Tupelo are about to go up.

Tupelo Water and Light Director Johnny Timmons shared the news with the Tupelo City council this Thursday afternoon.

TVA is raising its charge to the city by one and a half percent for the purchase of electricity.

The federal utility says the increase is needed to reduce $24 billion in debt.

For customers who use an average of 1,300-kilowatt hours, their bill will go up about $2.50 per month.
