Water Rates Still Hot Topic For SAWS Board

During a discussion about possible rule changes, the Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board reconsidered some proposed rate changes from their last meeting. The board attempted to adjust the rates by lowering fees for larger tap users. The motion failed and Board Member Dave Kinskey proposed giving public notice of two new alternatives.

That motion also did not pass. The board did agree to get a complete picture of impacts on system revenues, due to changes to the rate structure.

The Board is still working on possible amendments to the SAWS Ownership Agreement. They hope to have amendments that reflect the current City boundaries and city service areas in the coming months.

That’s Board Member Steve Maier. SAWS will look at the conservation plan for Twin Lakes Reservoir in the coming months, as well. The plan is part of the permit issued by the Army Corps of Engineers when Twin Lakes was expanded in the late 1990’s.
