CHA Utilities Investigation: Public meeting and hearing scheduled for Monday, April 5

Two public events regarding the pending investigation of CHA Utilities, LLC are scheduled for Monday, April 5, 2010 at the Faith Community Center (5572 Mercy Way, Lafayette, Indiana):

CHA Utilities is a privately-owned entity providing sewage disposal service to approximately 40 customers in the Creekside Subdivision near Lafayette.

The OUCC - the state agency representing consumer interests in cases before the IURC - requested a Commission investigation of CHA Utilities on February 3, 2010 after receiving information from customers regarding the charging of unauthorized rates, abandonment of operations, and failure to file required annual reports.

CHA customers who are unable to attend the April 5 events may submit written comments to the OUCC by mail, fax or the Internet:

Written comments should include the consumer's name, mailing address, and a reference to IURC Cause No. 43853.

The OUCC currently anticipates filing testimony in this case on May 18, 2010, with CHA expected to file response testimony on or before June 29, 2010.

All hearing and filing dates are subject to change. A settlement agreement is possible in any legal proceeding; the OUCC attempts to reach a fair settlement for customers in all rate cases.
