An Ordinance Establishing Water Rates For The City Of Portland, Arkansas, Repealing All Prior Ordinances In Conflict Therewith, Prescribing Other Matters Relating Thereto, And Declaring An Emergency.

Whereas, the City of Portland, Arkansas, now owns and operates the water facilities serving Portland, Arkansas, and has recently been required to expend considerable monies for maintenance, upgrading and refurbishing of such facilities, in order to provide adequate services for the citizens of Portland and to protect and provide for their health and welfare, and

Whereas, in order to continue to meet legal debt service for such modifications

And maintenance, and to provide for the operation of such facilities, it is now necessary that the City of Portland, Arkansas, establish new rates for the water facilities and persons served thereby, and repeal all prior ordinances or portions thereof in conflict herewith,

Now Therefore, Be It Ordained By The City Council Of The City Of Portland, Arkansas. As Follows:

Section 1: That the currently existing ordinances of the City of Portland, Arkansas, establishing and providing for water rates be and they are hereby amended as follows:

Monthly Water Rates

The water usage of each customer shall be determined each month by meter measurement, and the amount to be paid by each customer shall be computed on the basis of the following schedule or rates:

Base rate per month, $30.16

For each 1000 gallons of water consumption per month, or portion thereof, $4.15 per 1000 gallons.

Section 3: That it is hereby ascertained and declared that the failure to maintain adequate water facilities to serve the City constitutes a hazard to the life, health and welfare of the inhabitants of the City, and that the proper maintenance of the water system can be accomplished only by the passage of the foregoing rates. It is, therefore, declared that an emergency exists and this ordinance being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage.
