Water increase of 29% sought

GRAYSON - Rattlesnake Ridge Water District applied for a substantial rate increase with the Kentucky Public Service Commission on Monday, according to the Grayson newspaper.

The district is asking for an across-the-board rate increase of 29 percent for all customers, according to a legal ad in today’s Journal-Times.

The PSC has the statutory right to take up to 10 months to make a final decision.

In the meantime, however, Rattlesnake Ridge can implement the new rate schedule. If the rate increase is approved then no further action would be necessary. But if the PSC only allows only a partial increase, the district would have to refund customers the difference plus interest.

Rattlesnake Ridge Water District is the largest drinking-water provider in Carter County.

It purifies water from Grayson Lake for 4,049 customers in Carter, Elliott, Morgan and Lawrence counties.

Rummage sale set at church

FLATWOODS -  Flatwoods Free Will Baptist Church will have a rummage and hot-dog sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday.
