Based on conversations with Pine Bluff Water Authority, the average water bill for residents in the area is approximately $45 per month. If you live inside the town limits, the additional cost will be 3 percent, or $1.35 per month. If you are outside the town limits but within 1.5 miles of the town limits, the monthly cost would be 1.5 percent, or .68 cents per month.
If you have a minimum water bill of $25.50, the additional cost to those inside town limits would be 3 percent, or 77 cents per month. If you are outside the town limits but within 1.5 miles of the town limits, the monthly cost would be 1.5 percent, or 38 cents per month.
It is the intention of the governing body to direct these funds to improving fire protection for those in the Locust Fork fire coverage area. In doing so, the goal is to yet again lower the ISO rating, which will lower homeowners’ insurance costs.
If you have not already done so, please call your insurance agent and make sure that they are aware of the recent ISO change from a 7/9 to a 6/9 for the Locust Fork Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.
