03/16/2012 – Johnson County Commissioners approve a change in the way in which wastewater customers are billed.
On March 15, 2012, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) approved changes to the Johnson County Wastewater (JCW) billing approach.
"The commissioners have discussed making these changes for several years," said John O'Neil, general manager of JCW. "The reasons for the changes are to bring JCW in line with best practice of a true utility and for government transparency. Recent research has shown that the majority of JCW customers are not aware that a portion of the wastewater charges are billed annually with the property tax." A public education campaign for JCW's 135,000+ accounts will begin in late August, once the 2013 rates have been approved.
