Notices and Announcements
- Rate Increase Notice: Beginning with the billing period in January, MMWC will increase its water rates to connected users. The new rates consist of a base monthly meter fee of $35 per month. The water usage rate also increases from $1.75 per hundred gallons ($0.0175 per gallon) to $2.00 per hundred gallons ($0.02 per gallon). There is no change to the annual availability fee. This is the first increase in the user rates in five years. The company annually reviews its operating costs and attempts to contain costs continually. However, operating costs such as equipment and materials for normal system repairs, utility charges, regulatory requirements, etc. continued to escalate to the point where the company can no longer absorb those increases. It is the greatest desire of the Board of Directors that the company be able to meet its obligation and mission to provide good water to its members and guests as reliably as possible. Sound, practical financial management of economy and necessity allows this obligation to be acheived. As always, thank you for your support in all our efforts.
- The Board of Directors schedule their monthly meetings for the second Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Occassionally the meetings are canceled or postponed, so it is recommended that one check with the office prior to attending.
