Albemarle Co. Service Authority Approves 1% Decrease In Rates

June 20, 2013

The Albemarle Co. Service Authority (ACSA) met Thursday morning to vote on the new Fiscal Year 2014 Budget. The budget proposed a decrease rates for single family households.

This is the first time that ACSA lowered rates for their customers.

"The best news is that the average single family residential customer will see a one-percent decrease in their rates next year," says executive director Gary O'Connell. "We are also seeing a trend of people using less water, so in many cases people might see an actual decrease in their bill."

O'Connell explained that customers could start seeing a difference in their bill starting in July.

The board also approved a four-percent increase in connection fees for future projects and developments in the county. Those fees would go towards new water lines and water supply.
