Public input sought on water rate hike


Follow Daily Journal:


Thousands of Johnson County residents facing a potential water rate increase can give their opinion on the hike during an upcoming public hearing.

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, the state board that will consider a request to raise Indiana American Water rates, will host a public hearing at Franklin Community High School at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, which represents consumers in rate increase requests, will present an information session at 5:30 p.m, outlining the process for rate changes.

The proposed rate increase would cost $2.45 for most consumers using 5,000 gallons a month, according to a news release from the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor.

Members of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission will not answer questions during the public hearing. Staff from both state agencies will be available for questions before or after the hearing.

The commission considers consumer input when deciding on rate increase requests. Customers also can submit written opinions at the public hearing, online at www.in.gov/oucc.2361.htm, by email at uccinfo@oucc.in.gov, or by mail to Consumer Services Staff, Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, 115 W. Washington St., Suite 1500 South, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Comments should include a name and address, and reference: IURC Cause No. 44450.
