PMUA rate hearing tonight

Plainfield's Municipal Utilities Authority (PMUA) will hold its annual rate hearing this evening at 6:00 PM at PMUA headquarters, 127 Roosevelt Avenue (corner of East 2nd Street).

If the previous two years are any indication, there will be a copious presentation by consultants and proposed new rates for solid waste, shared services and sewer fees for calendar year 2013.

It remains to be seen if a rumored split on the Board of Commissioners about the rate changes will surface publicly or not.

A special meeting has also been advertised, set for 6:30 PM, which will take up ceremonial resolutions of thanks to departing Chief Financial Officer James Perry, who will retire as of December 31; and Commissioner Rev. Tracey Brown, who leaves her seat on the PMUA to take up her place on the City Council, effective January 1, 2013.
