CASE NO. 18-0051-PSD-19A CULLODEN PUBLIC SERVICE DISTRICT, A public utility, Culloden, Cabell County Rule 19A application to increase sewer rates and charges. NOTICE OF FILING On April 3, 2020, Culloden Public Service District (Culloden) filed an Application to Change Rates requesting that the Public Service Commission of West Virginia (Commission) approve the removal of Step 2 rates ordered in Case No. 18-0051-PSD 19A by a Recommended Decision issued June 13, 2018 (Final Order June 24, 2018 by a June 19, 2018 Commission Order waiving the exception period). The result will be that the current rates will remain in effect instead of a rate reduction of approximately 5.65% on average that would otherwise have been effective on June 24, 2020. Current rates will remain in effect until further order of the Commission. West Virginia Code 24-1-1(k) requires water and sewer utilities that are political subdivisions of the state to maintain a working capital reserve in an amount of no less than one-eighth of actual annual operation and maintenance expense. In order to assure that utilities deliver continuous and compliant service, the Commission, in Case No. 18-0051-PSD-19A, approved implementation of a cash working capital increment to allow Culloden to maintain the required cash working capital reserve. Culloden has applied for Commission approval, pursuant to Commission General Order No. 183.11 (February 24, 2020), to continue its current rates to ensure that the cash working capital reserve is properly maintained. Anyone desiring to protest should file a written protest as soon as possible, but no later than ten (10) days after the date of publication of this Notice. All written protest should briefly state the reason for the protest. Absent substantial protest the Commission may decide the case on the filings. All protest should clearly state the case name and number and be addressed to Connie Graley, Executive Secretary, Public Service Commission of West Virginia, P.O. Box 812, Charleston, West Virginia 25323. CULLODEN PUBLIC SERVICE DISTRICT LH-91966 5/2/9/20
