water rate increase rejected…again!

We won round two! I have a few thousand constituents that have been jerked around by their water company for a few months now. They are already paying the next to highest rates in the County (2nd to the outside city limit customers of the city owned water company, don’t get me started on that one). And the USSC keeps coming up with ways to ask the Public Services Commission for an increase. I’ve received correspondence from the PSC that the Utilities Services of South Carolina has been denied again for a rate increase proposal.

We initially thought this saga was over for residents of Acorn Drive, Altamont Court, Arcadia Drive, Bamboo Drive, Bayshore Lane, Brown Road, Bryson Road, Clearview Drive, Club Drive Drive, Crestwood Drive, Cretewood, Driftwood Drive, Edgewater Drive, June Way, Kings Court, Lakewood Drive, Marty Court, Meeting Street, Mountain View Place, Oakwood Estates, Old Shoals Drive, Olivarri Drive, Penniger Drive, Penniger Drive, Pine Top Circle, Red Oak Drive, Shannon Drive, Town Creek Trail, Twin Lakes Circle, Twin lakes Court, Twin Lakes Drive, Twin Lakes Drive, Wallwood Drive, Walnut Way, Wellwood Drive, Whisper Lane, Wilderness Lane, Wilson Road, Windwood Drive, Woodlake Road, Woodoak Drive, and Yates Circle. The USSC came back with another attempt to increase the rates on these constituents, but yet again, it was unanimously rejected.
