Kingsbury Utility Corporation, which provides service in LaPorte County, is seeking water and sewer rate increases in Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) Cause Nos. 44589-U and 44590-U.
The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC) filed reports with the IURC on June 9, 2015, recommending substantial decreases to the utility's requests.
The utility's requests would change monthly rates in 2 phases.
|Water (5,000 gallons)||Sewer (Flat rate)|
|KUC Request - Phase 1||$87.70||$50.52|
|KUC Request - Phase 2||$95.42||$61.29|
|OUCC Recommendation - Phase 1||$61.41||$33.40|
|OUCC Recommendation - Phase 2||$63.59||$42.44|
The OUCC filed more than 100 pages of written consumer comments on June 9, 2015. An IURC public field hearing was held in LaPorte on April 21, 2015.
Kingsbury Utility Corp. is expected to file replies to the OUCC reports and has requested an August 10, 2015 deadline for doing so.
All publicly filed documents in these cases are available by visiting the IURC's Electronic Document System. Entering docket number 44589 for the water case, or docket number 44590 for the sewer case.
Kingsbury Utility Corp. was granted new financing authority for its water and sewer utilities in IURC Cause No. 44327. The IURC issued orders in the case on September 11, 2013 and December 3, 2014. The utility's current base water and sewer rates were approved in 2008.
