A few highlights from the newly released WSA FY18 Budget:
Total WSA Operations & Maintenance costs up by 6.3%
Total WSA Department Revenue down by 1.5%.
Total WSA Budget: $21.1 million (some adjustments to be made)
The WSA is working on "other sources of revenue" i.e., commercial and multi unit properties.
Over the next month, the WSA will be cramming in the Enabling Legislation Criteria that is due . The WSA had a year to prepare this information, but they will be getting this all done in the next few weeks, i.e. developing a hardship clause, re-writing the rules and regulations, establishing interest rates on assessments, etc, etc..
I've said it before and I'll say it again, the WSA should be sold off and privatized as was done in the city of Cranston.
