Posted: Feb 7, 2018 10:48 AM

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission will hold a public hearing at Jeff High School Wednesday night. People can listen and ask questions regarding the city's proposed increase to water rates.

The city's pending request would raise water rates in two phases. Homeowners using 5,000 gallons of water a month would notice the hike. Their monthly water rates would go from $12.13 to $16.51. The price would rise to $18.31 when phase two takes effect.

The hearing will start Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. inside the Rohrman Performing Arts Center at Jeff. You are encouraged to get there before 5:45 p.m. for an overview of field hearing procedures and the rate case process.

During the hearing, the community is invited to speak directly to the commission under oath and for the record.  Consumers will also be able to submit written comments for the case record. Commissioners said comments will carry equal weight whether they are written or oral.

Commissioners will not be allowed to ask questions during the field hearing. However, Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselors will be available before, during, and after the hearing to address questions about the process.

OUCC is the state agency representing consumer interests in cases before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The counselors are conducting a legal and technical review of the city's request and is scheduled to file testimony on February 15, 2018.

Written comments for the case record may be received by the OUCC's Website, mail, email or fax.
