PRVWSD Email Notifications

The PRVWSD recently instituted a new initiative to keep the community informed of events and other topics of interest involving the Ross Barnett Reservoir.  This initiative involves a weekly email.  If you are not receiving the email, and would like to, contact Cindy Ford, Executive Assistant at the PRVWSD, at cford@therez.ms.

Included in this past week's email is the following:

The Board of Directors has approved a water and sewer rate adjustment.  The adjustment will increase the minimum charge for the first 3000 gallons of water and sewer to $14 (water) and $16 (sewer).  The volumetric charge for water and sewer service over 3,000 will be increased to $4.25 (water) and $5.75 (sewer).   The will also be a 5% annual volumetric increase FY2016 through FY2020.  Customers will see the increase on their July 2014 billing.

·         Discussions continue on the Lake User Permit Fee.  Staff is continuing to coordinate the implementation and take comments on Lake User Permits.  The target date for implementation is January 2015.

·         PRVWSD will exhibit again at the 2014 Wildlife Extravaganza August 1, 2 & 3.  The Special Permit Hunt applications will be ready for distribution at this year’s event.  The Board of Directors approved changes to the hunts to allow for a better experience and a longer season.

·         The REZ tag presales have reached 206.  Only 94 more needed to complete our 300 goal.  Sign-up now if you haven’t already!

·         The vehicle traffic control fee will be collected at the public parks on weekends and holidays beginning this Saturday May 3rd.   The fee will be $5.00 per vehicle for admission to Lakeshore Park, Pelahatchie Shore Park and Old Trace Park after 12 o’clock noon on weekends and holidays.  An annual pass is available for purchase for $30.00 at the PRVWSD Payment and Permit office.
