Last January, many people were surprised when they opened their Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District (PSWID) statement for water services rendered in December 2010. Some were surprised that the water rate change that the PSWID Board had voted “effective January 1, 2011” had been applied to the statement for December water service, while others were surprised by the size of the raise in the monthly service charge.
The PSWID Board will soon set its budget for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The PSWID Board has recently posted on their Web site that a budget hearing and regular meeting will take place on June 23 at 6 p.m. at the PSWID office on Hardscrabble in Pine.
To avoid a PSWID January 2012 surprise, plan to attend this important meeting on June 23 at 6 p.m. Be informed!
