Pepper’s Ferry to hold public hearing on budget and rates

Pepper’s Ferry Regional Wastewater Treatment Authority will hold a public hearing Thursday on its 2009-10 Fiscal Year budget and rate structure.
The $4.9 million budget represents a $19,477 (.39 percent) decrease over the current budget, but that the decrease is so minor Executive Director Clarke Wallcraft said considers it a “level-funded budget.”
He said his goal was to develop a budget that would not impact the budgets of member jurisdictions.
The budget reductions translate into reduced costs to Pepper’s Ferry member jurisdictions.
Although a breakdown of costs per jurisdiction shows a 2.71 percent increase in costs in the Town of Pulaski and a 2.51 percent increase for the Town of Dublin, Wallcraft said those figures are skewed by sulfate surcharges added to those jurisdictions under a surcharge program for sulfate discharges.
Under that program, industries can increase their sulfate discharges by paying a surcharge to the Authority. The surcharge is billed to the Authority member, who is then reimbursed by the prospective industries.
When those reimbursable surcharges are removed from the total cost to each jurisdiction, Wallcraft said the Town of Pulaski will realize about $46,000 in reduced costs during the upcoming fiscal year and Dublin will see a $1,761 decrease.
Authority members are billed based on the amount of flow they discharge into the plant.
Total cost to each member under the proposed budget will be:
• Town of Pulaski: $1.958,461;
• Radford City: $1,688,134;
• Montgomery County Public Service Authority (PSA): $199,270;
• Pulaski County PSA: $406,810;
• Pulaski County Sewage Authority (Fairlawn area): $205,324; and
• Town of Dublin: $334,305.

The meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Authority’s Administration Building on Mason Street in Fairlawn.
