University disputes $1 million of city electricity bills

The University of North Texas won the latest round in its legal fight with the city of Denton over more than $1 million in disputed electric bills.

The 2nd Court of Appeals in Fort Worth reversed a district judge’s 2009 ruling that a state-mandated electric rate discount for public colleges and universities expired in September 2007. The city of Denton, which provides electric service to UNT, sued the university in an attempt to enforce the undiscounted rate.
