SENATOR FUSCHILLO CALLS ON PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION TO HOLD LOCAL PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED AQUA-NEW YORK WATER RATE INCREASE

 

Reminds Residents to Voice Their Concerns About Proposed Water Rate Increase to NYS Public Service Commission 

          State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) today called on the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) to hold a local public hearing with regard to Aqua-New York Water’s proposed rate increase.

            Senator Fuschillo made the request to the PSC in a letter dated June 26th to give residents an additional opportunity to voice their thoughts about the proposal.

             Aqua-New York Water has submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) seeking approval to raise their rates. Documents submitted to the PSC by Aqua-New York Water estimate that the increase would raise residents’ average monthly bills by 12%. The PSC must give its approval before the rate increase can take effect.

             Senator Fuschillo has already called on the PSC to reject Aqua-New York Water’s proposed rate increase that would raise residents’ average monthly water bills by 12%.

             Residents who want to voice their concerns about the proposed Aqua-New York Water rate can do so by:

             * Emailing the PSC at secretary@dps.state.ny.us

             * Leaving a message on the PSC’s toll free opinion line at 1-800-335-2120

             *Writing to:

              Jaclyn Brilling, Secretary

              New York State Public Service Commission

              Three Empire State Plaza, 19th Floor

              Albany, New York 12223

             Residents should reference the case number when contacting the PSC (case #09-W-0237).
