Does ECUA get the message?
September 8, 2006
One government agency that should listen hard to the Sept. 5th primary vote is the Emerald Coast Utility Authority. The voters want change. We hear that FEMA will announce this month whether the funds allocated for repairing the Main St. Plant can be used to relocate it.
ECUA needs to be prepared to consider rate increases to help finance the move and the construction of a new plant near Gulf Power’s Crist plant. Seminole County is doing that. There the county commissioners run the utility and they aren’t asking for cities or the county’s general fund to pay for their $250 million in utility capital projects.
