Liberty Water/Liberty Utilities Requesting Water and Sewer Rate Increases Again!

??????????????????????????????????????????

Liberty Water aka, Liberty Utilities, formerly known as Litchfield Park Service Company (LPSCO) is yet again asking for a rate increase for water and sewer services.  Liberty provides water and sewer services to the Village at Litchfield Park Community, most of Litchfield Park (incorporated and unincorporated areas) and North Goodyear.  On February 28th, 2013, Liberty Water filed their next rate increase with the Arizona Corporation Commission.

Many folks who live in Litchfield Park and North Goodyear remember all too well the Liberty rate increase that was past back in 2010 which just about doubled homeowners water and sewer bills.  More than 500 residents showed up to protest the last rate increase.  You can read the history of that meeting and rate increase here: http://www.azcentral.com/community/swvalley/articles/20100128swv-libertywater0129.html

For details on the proposed rate increase, be sure to review the Public Notice of Hearing on Application for Increases in its Water and Wastewater Utility Service Rates and Charges by Litchfield Park Service Company DBA Liberty Utilities
