PUBLIC NOTICE The public is hereby advised that the Town of Gordonsville Town Council will hold a meeting on Monday, November 18, 2019 at 6:30 p.m., in Town Council chambers on the second floor of Town Hall located at 112 South Main Street, Gordonsville, Virginia. During this meeting Council will conduct a public hearing on the following matter, pursuant to the authority of Virginia Code section 15.2-2119. All persons with an interest in the same are encouraged to attend this public hearing. Oral and/or written comments will be received at that time. WATER RATE ADJUSTMENT Gordonsville's water rate is evaluated annually. This evaluation is based on the annual adjustment of the Town of Orange's rate for the Rapidan Service Authority (RSA) to purchase water. Gordonsville purchases water from the Rapidan Service Authority. If the Town of Orange adjusts the water rate to be paid by the Rapidan Service Authority (RSA), RSA follows with a rate adjustment to the Town of Gordonsville. This is then passed on to Town of Gordonsville water system customers. RSA has notified the Town of a rate increase that will take effect October 15, 2019 and, upon adoption by Council, will be reflected in the Town's November billing for water (which covers water used October 15th November 15th). Town Council will receive comments regarding proposed amendments to Chapter 23 of the Town Code amending the Town of Gordonsville water rates as follows: Use Type Current Rate Proposed Rate (per 1,000 gallons) (per 1,000 gallons) In-Town Out of Town In-Town Out of Town Residential/commercial 1st 1,000 gallons (base rate) $23.55 $37.52 $23.62 $37.62 Residential/commercial over 1,000 gallons (unit rate) $7.45 $11.18 $7.52 $11.27 Industrial 1st 1,000 gallons (base rate) $28.55 $46.78 $28.62 $46.86 Industrial over 1,000 gallons (unit rate) $7.45 $9.32 $7.52 $9.39 RSA meter 1st 1,000 gallons (base rate) $37.52 $37.62 RSA meter over 1,000 gallons (unit rate) $11.18 $11.27 Bulk water sales (potable water) $1.64 per 100 gallons $1.65 per 100 gallons A complete copy of the amendment is available for public review at Gordonsville Town Hall, 112 S.
