Rate Increase Notice


After 10 years of operation, the HLUA O&M Fee of $105.00 is no longer able to support saving for Future Equipment Replacement costs.  The O&M Fee will remain at $105.00 per quarter per user.  Beginning with the July 2019 quarterly invoices, a new ER&R Fee of $35.00 per quarter per user will be added.  The ER&R Fee will only be used for Equipment Replacement and Repair costs.  The O&M Fee and ER&R Fee will be reviewed each year at budget time to determine if changes are needed.
