Cost of public meeting about cost of service: free
Tuesday, November 8, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
Today isn’t just Election Day. It’s also the day that Austin Water is holding a cost-of-service meeting in order to help determine how water and wastewater rates will be established in the future as part of a process that will continue into the spring. The first meeting, for wholesale customers, will take place at 9:30 a.m. in room 104 of the Waller Creek Center, and it will focus on the topic of “determining revenue requirements for wholesale and outside city customers and an overview of the reclaimed water system.” The second will be for residential, multifamily, commercial and large-volume customers. It will take place at the same location, but at 4:30 p.m., and will focus on “revenue requirements, general fund transfers and the Utility’s reclaimed water system.” Not sure what all of this is all about, but curious? The city’s website has you covered with information about the cost-of-service study.
