State Representative for District #54, Kevin Ford is hosting a meeting with Brent Bailey regarding rate increases for some county residents.

The meeting will be held at Gibson United Methodist Church this Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Bailey is the Central District Commissioner for the Public Service Commission that oversees utilities in the State of Mississippi.

At issue is a recent 3-fold rate hike for wastewater disposal in areas of the county. On July 25, Great River Utility Operating Company, LLC, announced in a letter their intent to increase the cost of wastewater disposal. If you received a letter announcing this information then this meeting applies directly to you.
