NOTICE OF REGULAR MEETING AND PUBLIC HEARING FOR ADOPTION OF RETAIL WATER AND WASTEWATER UTILITY RATES, FEES, AND CHARGES

The Highway 79 Corridor Authority (the "Authority") announces a public hearing to which all interested persons are invited for the purpose of considering the adoption of retail water and wastewater utility rates, fees, and charges for customers wishing to connect to and utilize the Highway 79 Corridor Authority utility system. The proposed Highway 79 Corridor Authority utility rate schedule is as follows:

The Authority will impose and collect water and wastewater impact fees from all customers at the current rates adopted by the City of Bonifay as a pass through, which rates are currently $2,2660.00 for sewer system impact fees per ERU and $948.00 for water system impact fees per ERU.

Effective with the bills rendered on and after October 1, 2022, and each year thereafter, an automatic increase in the monthly base facility charges, consumption rates, and miscellaneous service rates adopted in this resolution, may be applied to such rates which are in effect immediately prior to the effective date of each annual increase. The annual index adjustment shall be equal to the annual change in the "U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Consumer Price Index-All Urban Consumers, U.S. City Average, Services" for the month of April immediately preceding the October 1 adjustment date.

The Authority is a legal entity and public body created pursuant to the provisions of Section 163.01, Florida Statutes, and an Interlocal Agreement among the City of Bonifay, Florida; Holmes County, Florida; and Washington County, Florida.

The public hearing will occur during the Authority Board of Director's regularly scheduled public meeting to be held at the following dates, times, and locations:

At the public hearing, all customers of the Authority, affected property owners, tenants or occupants, and all other interested persons shall have an opportunity to be heard and to file written comments concerning the proposed utility rates. If a person decides to appeal any decision made by the Authority with respect to any matter considered at the hearing, such person will need a record of the proceeding and may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be made.
