When the Lower Colorado River Authority’s staff began the process of formulating and adopting a new rate structure for the price of water it sells to customers in the river basin, the plan was to bring a proposal to the utility’s board of directors at their June meetings.
The board’s monthly committee meetings are scheduled for Tuesday and its full board meeting Wednesday, but the likelihood they will vote on a new rate structure or even be presented with one for discussion, other than a temporary measure, is unlikely, Burnet City Manager David Vaughn said this week.
LCRA’s firm customers, such as the cities of Burnet, Marble Falls, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville and numerous other municipal water supply districts and interruptible customers such as downstream rice farmers, still have serious concerns about proposed changes the utility’s staffers have presented to them in the past several months.
“There are still a lot of issues and concerns by both sides that need to be resolved,” Vaughn said in interview Monday.
