Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano hosted a town hall meeting for Aqua customers earlier this month in Jasmine Lakes. More than 400 people attended.

Mariano is helping organize a bus trip to Tallahassee for the PSC’s May 24 meeting. The commission is scheduled to rule on the rate case.

On March 11, Pasco Commissioners unanimously adopted a resolution opposing the rate increase. Mariano said Aqua’s facility charges are already 237 percent higher than Pasco County’s charges. “These people can’t afford it,” he said. “Imagine being a single lady on a retirement income who used to pay $40 a month, and now you’re paying $150.” For the full story click the link below.
