Howard County Utilities

Howard County Utilities - which provides service in the Green Acres Subdivision near Kokomo - filed a request in August to raise its flat, monthly residential sewer rate from $69.00 to $153.92.

An IURC public field hearing was held in Kokomo on November 6, 2019. The OUCC issued an October 24, 2019 news release to invite consumer comments.

On November 14, 2019, the IURC stayed this case until further notice. This includes suspending the OUCC's deadline to file testimony.

On March 23, 2020, the utility and Green Acres Subdivision filed a proposal to sell the utilities assets, including establishment of a new monthly rate of $151.47. OUCC testimony (Corey, Dellinger, and Parks) would reduce that amount to $120.42.

Public files for the rate case (Cause No. 45283-U) and proposed sale (Cause No. 45360) are available on the IURC website. This page will be updated based on case developments.
