PUC makes determination on wholesale water dispute

The Public Utility Commission of Texas made a decision Thursday in the dispute between the city of Graham’s wholesale water customers and the city related to an appeal filed in October 2017. The commissioners made a decision based on a memo filed by Chairman DeAnn Walker Wednesday, in which she agreed with the administrative law judges opinion in favor of the city.

The memo states the petition failed to meet their burden of proof and show the city of Graham’s rates are “adverse to the public interest and that the petitions should be dismissed.” The PUC heard arguments from attorneys representing both sides of the case Friday, Feb. 14, and tabled the topic until the next open meeting Thursday, Feb. 27.

In Walker’s memo she said despite agreeing with the opinion of the ALJs, she had concerns with other portions of the proposal for decision.
