Water and Sewer Rate Increase Presentation, March 9, 2009

On Monday, March 9, 2009 at the Lakeview Design Center, 455 Rural Hill Road, I invited the staff of the Metro Water Service (MWS) to provide a presentation on the proposed water and sewer rate increase. I held the presentation prior to the third and final reading before passage by the Metro Council. I wanted to hear from residents of District 29 regarding their thoughts on the proposed water and sewer rate increase. Therefore I made announcements regarding the meeting at the Metro Council meeting and news television station and on my blog which I hope that you will continue to visit often. The MWS did a great job in the presentation and answering questions presented. The impact on an average water and sewer bill is about $3.76. The new plan will address several concerns, some of which you have experienced first hand, like storm water issues. This plan will address the many storm water problems that you have. Whether your project is rated an A, B, or C, your storm water concern will get attention in an orderly manner with the funds that will become available as a result of the rate increase. The plan also addressed the late fee and water capacity fees which both will be reduced. If you missed the meeting, click on links below for the Water and Sewer power point presentation provided on March 9 as well as the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). Or connect directly to the MWS to learn more about their services. Power Point Presentation of March Frequently Asked Questions: General Website: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
