While no formal action was taken during their November 18 regular meeting, members of Truth or Consequences’ Public Utility Advisory Board discussed several issues surrounding utility rates. Board member Ron Pacourek sought clarification about a mandated annual five-percent increase now on the books for wastewater and solid waste fees, and questioned the practice of including specific rate levels within city code. After discussing these concerns with city manager Morris Madrid, the PUAB ultimately agreed to await the results of a scheduled rate assessment before considering potential corrective measures. Board members also reviewed fees associated with domestic water wells. Above, (l-to-r) board members Don Armijo and Gil Avelar examined materials provided by Pacourek, who questioned if the fee established in city code is being properly implemented. After a brief discussion, members once again agreed to postpone further discussion until the city manager has an opportunity to evaluate the situation and reports back to the advisory board.
