White City Water Users

Notice of Pending Water Rate Increase

September 14, 2017

The Village of White City would like you to be aware of a pending water rate increase. The City of Mt. Olive currently supplies the Village of White City with drinking water and the latest contract with Mt. Olive expired in June of 2017. We have not yet signed a new contract with Mt. Olive, but will do so within the next few weeks.

The previous contract with Mt. Olive was for 5 years and the yearly increase in rates was 5%.  The new contract will be at a 4% yearly increase with a 3-year contract. Once a new contract is in place, White City will review all water user accounts and will have to pass a new ordinance updating water user rates. Once new rates are established you will be notified in advance with date the increase will take effect.

 

 

Update on New Drinking Water System

 

After many years of working to get new water mains installed for the Village, we are now very close to getting this project started. We will update everyone as we get closer to starting construction. Once this project is complete, White City will be supplied with drinking water from the City of Staunton. A vast majority of this project will be funded with grant dollars but some of the project will require monies in the form a loan much like our current sewer system was funded.

We want everyone to understand that a new water system does not necessarily mean water rates will increase dramatically or at all. We will know more once the project is bid and what the final grant to loan ratio will be.
