Water Rate Increase Update

Thanks to all who provided input by mail or at our two March Member Meetings on the water rate increase options recommended by our consultant, Dr. Brent Haddad. The member input was nearly unanimous in terms of preferring Option 2 which has the lower bimonthly rates of $210.35 for non-metered customers and $148.70 plus the two tiered charge (tier #1 of 0-6000 cubic feet @ $0.0127 per cubic foot and tier #2 of 6,001 + cubic feet at $0.0255 per cubic foot) for the water used by metered customers. The Board of Directors, in the April 17, 2011 Board Meeting adopted the Option 2 rate structure to become effective July 1, 2011. The Board also intends to move forward installing 90-100% of the meters by June 30, 2012. And, beginning July 1, 2012 all the metered flat rate customers will be converted to the metered rates at one time. Again, thank you for your input which confirmed the Board thinking and helped determine the rate increase decision.

Norm Wyman, Board President
