Royal Utility Company

 

Customer Notice

March 7, 2016

 

Dear Customer,

 

Royal Utility Company has owned and operated your water and wastewater facilities for more than 30 years. Unlike most utility systems, Royal has never sought a rate increase, other than annual cost of living indexing. In order to maintain the high standard of service you have come to expect, the system is in need of long term capital improvements consisting of upgrades to both its water and wastewater facilities. These improvements cannot be funded without a rate increase.

In order to avoid many of the capital expenditures required to remain a separate stand-alone utility, we offered to sell our system to the City of Coral Springs, in which case the rate increase could be avoided.  However, to date the City has not acted on our offer to sell, thus we must proceed with a filing for an increase in our rates to fund these necessary improvements.

Our consultants have provided preliminary calculations that show the typical household will see a rate increase of about $460 per annum, or about $38.25 per month. This is comprised of an average increase in the water rate of approximately $23 per month as well as an average increase in the wastewater rate of approximately $15.25 per month.

Royal Utility Company is one of the few remaining privately owned water and wastewater utilities in South Florida and as such must go through this process to fund necessary capital improvements. You can rest assured that we will continue to provide the high quality uninterrupted service that you have come to expect.

 

Sincerely,

Royal Utility Company, Inc.
