Opposition to rate increase by Skyline Water Company
- Division of Energy Regulations State Corporation Commission
- United States of America
I am writing concerning the rate increase proposed by Dave Travers (i.e. Skyline Water Company). We as a community do not feel this increase is warrented. 16 years ago the water bill was $16.00 monthly, now with the addition of meters we all pay a minimum of $30.00 and some of us pay as much as $80.00 a month. For my bill this equates to almost a 400% increase over 16 years.
For years we have been told that the rate increases were going to be used for improvements to the existing well and or well house, to date none of us have seen any of these improvements. Mr. Travers has been called repeatedly by myself and my neighbors because of water that sometimes has dirt in it and has an oily film. Mr. Travers solution is always to flush the line outside the residence. This flushing of the lines only clears the water up for a brief period, eventually the dirt and oil return.
I, as one of many home owners which is serviced by Skyline Water Company, strongly oppose this current rate increase. We do not feel that Mr. Travers should be able to charge the home owners $60.00 an hour if we are opposed to his proposal. Mr. Travers should not be allowed to charge a $20,000.00 connection fee for new homes.
