The Prudence Island Water District will hold a rate hearing on November 19, 2022, at 11am. The PIWD will present the proposed 2023 budget, which it used at the October meeting as the reasoning behind the proposed new rate of $750 annually per connection. (The proposed tax assessment of $.76 per thousand remains unchanged from 2022.) Interested persons will then have an “opportunity to present data, views, and arguments”, as per charter and bylaws.
Those unable to attend may send comments or questions to our Treasurer, Ann Marie Lockwood, or budget subcommittee member Chuck Bear, and we will do our best to present them at the hearing.
Members of the public wishing to comment on other PIWD matters may, as usual, take advantage of the public comment period at one of our board meetings. The next board meeting will be held later on November 19, at 1pm in Hope Brown Center.
