Snow King Estates

Town of Jackson public works personnel place a new water main beneath Snow King Drive in 2018.

Whether you're flush with cash or you're tired of sinking money into your utility bills and watching them drain your bank account, the Town of Jackson wants to hear from you.

The town has an ongoing survey to learn how Jackson residents feel about its current water rates structure, and who should shoulder the load to ensure the town has a sufficient revenue stream to keep up with maintenance and its accompanying work flow.

OK, enough with the water puns.

According to a release from the town, "the study is evaluating how to maintain the quality services the town provides while covering operating costs." It is about a dozen questions long and takes less than five minutes to complete, unless you have some strongly held opinions about water rates and usage that you'd like to share with town staff. If you missed the previous hyperlink, you can find the survey here.

The town began the water rate and capacity study in late 2019 and has looked to a Citizen Review Committee for input and advice for several months. A presentation to the town council on the issue is also available for viewing.

So, don't be a drip, and take a few minutes to provide your input. Sorry, couldn't help myself. The survey will be up until Tuesday, Sept. 15 and about 160 people have filled it out thus far.
