The new rates will reflect an overall in- crease of about 15 percent and are proposed to be effective June 1. An informational meeting has been planned for May 6 at 7;30 p.m. at the Monroe PUD auditorium to explain new proposed PUD rates increases. PUD officials will be on hand to outline the new rate proposals and answer comsumer ques- tions. At least one commissioner is expected to attend the local meeting, one of several ses- sions being planned throughout the county. The new proposed rate increases are still low when compared to other utility services, such as Seattle City Light, Tacoma City Light, and Puget Power. PUD Manager W.G. Hulbert, Jr. said that the utility has been absorbing a 27 percent in- crease in wholesale power costs from the Bon- neville Power Administration since last De- cember 20. The utility purchases virtually all of its power from BPA. Hulbert said that the wholesale increase in purchased power coupled with rising costs in all areas of utility operations the past several years has made a rate increase at this time abso- lutely necessary. "Even with the proposed increase, Snohomish County PUD rates will be lower than neighbor- ing utilities and will remain among the lowest in the nation," he added. Residential and commercial rates will in- crease approximately 15 percent on the aver- age, with industrial rates going up slightly ov- er 20 percent. A typical residential customer using 1500 kilowatt hours of electricity month- ly will experience a $1.90 monthly increase under the new rates. A monthly customer charge for residential and commercial customers will be a part of the new rates. This charge will be $1.50 per month for residential customers and $3 for calmer- ctal accounts. The purpose of this charge is to recover a portion of the fixed costs of provid- ing and maintaining service to a customer and Bliss Accepted For Membership includes a proportionate share of meter reading and billing costs which are incurred whether a customer uses any electricty or not. A re- cently completed study by the PUD indicated that the actual fixed costs of providing elec- tric service to residential customers was $2.62 per month and $3.76 per month for commercial accounts. Snohomish County PUD serves 110,000 cus- tomers in the county and on Camano Island. Of these, 100,000 are residential customers. |lI 24 Hour Answering Service Servlce - New & Used Sets for Sale omo Gal. Gal. in mm mml imm Ayers said earlier performances of the play Dorothy E.
