AVILLA – The June Town Council meeting included a vote to update Ordinance 1581-5-17, which increased the electric rates for Avilla residents, which will begin on August 1st. This increase is imperative to cover the costs of growing operating expenses.
The good news is that the new rates are lower than anticipated, due to discovering an error that occurred several months ago. There was an oversight of missed billing from electric meters, which for the most part, were installed in mid-summer of 2015. It was found that the (at that time) newly installed meters were only reading two of three phases of current before the error was revealed and was corrected.
Get a full list of the new rates on the Town’s website at avilla-in.org under Utilities Rates & Policies or visit the Avilla Town Hall for more information during normal business hours.
