North Shelby Sewer Rates

You are incorrect in your article when you said that rates are being reviewed by Lay and Dudchock review rates for compliance with the contract. When I approached them about the subject, they did not have the capital expenditures incurred by Southwest Water, nor did they have any information on what they are paying Alabama Power......which other than the 8%automatic rate hike and the CPI component, are critical to justifying the rates. The contract says that the county commission can request audited financial statements, which they have not requested and shouldn't they validate the $9 million in expenditures by looking at other comparable systems? It's turning a blind eye.....
