Town Manager Hozey has been navigating the landscape of the utility sale to Virginia American Water as Cape Charles explores potential changes in its infrastructure.
The Town Manager has delved into the State Corporation Commission (SCC) staff report, a pivotal document shaping the town’s potential utility sale. Working with legal counsel, who is in turn collaborating with Virginia American Water (VAW) counsel, the town is orchestrating a formal response to the report. This response aims to address key points raised by the SCC and move the process forward.
Discussions surrounding a stipulation agreement have gained momentum. If accepted by all parties involved, this agreement could preempt the need for an evidentiary hearing slated for the coming month. Such progress marks a step toward resolving complexities surrounding the utility sale.
Cape Charles is also engaged in a broader SCC filing concerning VAW’s rate case. Ensuring that the town’s interests are represented, Hozey and staff are scrutinizing this filing to guarantee that any proposed rate adjustments align with Cape Charles’ expectations and financial considerations.
The town has also been actively engaged with VAW, conducting routine updates on the status of water and wastewater plants. These meetings serve to ensure that operational standards remain robust during this period of transition.
