The Highland County Water Company, Inc. will be implementing a rate increase plan to take affect on July 1, 2013 and on July 1st the following years, until revoked by the Board of Directors. The yearly increase will be $0.50 (fifty cents) on the monthly minimum rates. This will affect all customers equally and will be evaluated yearly. We feel that this would be easier on our customers than a large increase at one time, which we anticipate would be necessary in 2016. With the cost of materials, labor, electric, and fuel increasing we feel this to be necessary.
Presented and approved at the April 11, 2013 Annual Meeting of the Board and Members.
