SENATOR FUSCHILLO TO PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION: REJECT PROPOSED AQUA-NEW YORK WATER RATE INCREASE

 

In a letter to the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) dated May 1, 2009, State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) called on the PSC to reject Aqua-New York Water’s proposed rate increase that would raise residents’ average monthly water bills by 12%.  Senator Fuschillo is urging residents who are concerned about the proposed increase to share their concerns directly with the PSC.

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.

Residents who want to voice their concerns about the proposed Aqua-New York Water rate increase should write 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 in their letter (case #09-W-0237).
