I received an interesting email this afternoon from Robert L. "Robb" Pitts, Commissioner, District 2-At Large, Fulton County Board of Commissioners:
Dear Fulton County residents and business owners:
You have been asked to conserve water, which you have done. Regrettably, this decrease in water usage also caused a reduction in Fulton County's revenue. Based on projected water sales, Fulton County will be unable to produce the net revenues needed to cover the required 2008 bond debt service. As a result, the county has adjusted water and sewer rates by 15%.
Ironically, though we have followed strict water restrictions successfully (which are even stricter than the state's restrictions) we are now being penalized in the form of a rise in water rates.
Click here for more information regarding the amended rates.
If you live in Fulton County and wish to contact Robert L. "Robb" Pitts, Commissioner, District 2-At Large, for additional information or with feedback, he can be reached at:
