Raytown Water Co. wants to raise rates

Raytown Water Company filed a request to raise its rates with the Missouri Public Service Commission.  The reason given is increased expenses and/or investments in facilities.

The rate increase is projected to increase revenues by $471,205 for the company, an increase of 13.9%.  To arrive at that goal, the monthly minimum charge would increase from $7.86 to $8.97  (14.1%) and the usage per 1,000 gallons would go from $4.94 to $5.63 (13.96%). 

A cover letter was included with the notice that listed what the money would be spent on, but it did not indicate a specific amount or percent for each listed item, which included increased wholesale water cost, computer upgrades, and merit wage and salary increases.

The last rate increase granted Raytown Water Company became effective on May 4th, 2009.  The company was ordered to lower their rate by 3% by the Missouri Public Service Commission on Nov. 1st, 2009 due to a loan retirement.

The notice of this proposed rate increase is dated June 1st, 2010 and states that the deadline for commenting on this request is 30 days after the notice.  Comments may be submitted to both the Public Service Commission and/or the Office of the Public Counsel.
