After a two year hiatus, the Public Service Commission set a final hearing date for the West Point water rate increase. On Tuesday, Northern Region Commissioner Brandon Presley announced that attorneys for both parties agreed to a schedule to help make a decision in the case.
The staff for the PSC will have until Sept. 10 to file new data requests and questions regarding the case. The attorney for the city of West Point Light and Water Department will have two weeks to answer the PSC staff. A final ruling will be made by PSC on Oct. 11.
Young people were the topic at Wednesdayâ€™s meeting of the Civitan Luncheon Club. Renaissance Vice President Carlos Orr, a Baptist minister and community leader, and Renaissance member Matthew Lewis, who works with the drug court and mentors young men, spoke to the Civitans about their work.
Renaissance literally means â€śa new birth.â€ť In West Point it is a joint undertaking of the Christian community, drug court and law enforcement to help young people who are at-risk or who have already had a brush with the law.
