|Ferriday hikes water rates|
The Ferriday Board of Aldermen unanimously agreed to raise water rates $6 per month, upping the flat rate of $23.60 monthly.
That action came during a public hearing in which Louisiana Rural Development Director Clarence Hawkins and Engineer Bryant Hammett addressed the board and audience.
"If the rates get unreasonable, we will monitor them and let you know," Hawkins said following questions about how much JCP Management of Harrisonburg, the water system operator, also known as the third party, will be making.
"We're not going to let you get ripped off," he said. "You are protected. We monitor rates all the time. The Town of Ferriday is not designed to make money off of the water because it is a necessity. The rates are reasonable to serve a purpose. It's not a source of income."
Ferriday Mayor Glen McGlothin said the increase will go into effect in the next billing cycle.
Aldermen Gloria Lloyd, Johnnie Brown and Gail Pryor along with people from the audience asked how much JCP Management would be making each month.
But Hawkins and Hammett said there was no way to know the exact figure.
