New Information from NYS DPS Regarding FWWC Rate Increase Request

To: Residents of AuSable Acres

From:  Pete DeFina, President of AAPOA

Re:  Recent communication with the Department of Public Service

On May 7th I received a call from Mr. Michael Horan who works for the Department of Public Service (DPS), which is the state governmental agency that oversees water companies such as Forever Wild.  As you are hopefully aware the DPS is in the process of reviewing the Forever Wild Water Company’s (FWWC) request for a rate increase.

He stated that the DPS received 50 public comments regarding this rate increase request.  If you would like to review these comments you can access the DPS site using the following link:  http://documents.dps.ny.gov/public/MatterManagement/CaseMaster.aspx?MatterCaseNo=18-W-0074&submit=Search

He stated that many of those comments were concerned about the use of the $50 surcharge that has been a part of our quarterly water bill since 2009.  To address these specific comments the DPS prepared a document titled “Summary or Revenues and Expenditures for Forever Wild Water Company, Inc’s Escrow Account from 2009 to 2017.

That $50 surcharge portion of our quarterly water bills has to be accounted for separately and held in an escrow account to be used for infrastructure purposes.  This account and the expenditures made from this account is overseen and reviewed by the DPS.  Mr. Horan asked specifically if I would share this document with the residents of AuSable Acres.  And, accordingly, the 18 page document created by the DPS is attached to this posting. Click on the attachment below and then click on the page that is showing and the entire document will open for you.
