Item 6 Amendments for 5/24/2018 Meeting

Post by Alison Alter » Tue May 22, 2018 4:57 pm

Dear Colleagues,

I intend to offer amendments to Item 6 at Thursday's meeting - see link below. The current language prohibits a customer who **applies** for a bill adjustment under the high volume water bill section from applying for an adjustment under the section covering water leaks.

My amendment changes this language to prohibit a customer from applying for a bill adjustment under one section only if the customer **receives** the bill adjustment under the other section.

The intent is to ensure that a customer who applies for and is subsequently determined to be ineligible for a bill adjustment under one section would still be able to apply for an adjustment under the other section. Staff from Austin Water and the legal department worked with my office, and Austin Water said they are comfortable with this change.
