San Marcus passes new legislation to give back to veterans and soldiers.

The San Marcos City Council has decided on a new way to thank America's service men and women. 

They approved a measure on Tuesday to waive utility deposits for honorably discharged veterans and current active duty soldiers.

According to a City press release: "The account must be established in the name of the veteran in order to qualify for the deposit waiver. Utility deposits can range from $50 to $400, depending on the services provided and usage history."

If a waiver recipient is delinquent in their bills the deposits will be reinstated.
