Daufuskie Island Utility Company Raising Rates 47%

State Public Service Commissions that administer utility rates require period Management Audits of the Utility Operations that they oversee. To my knowledge, DFIU has never been audited. These audits examine the cost records and operational processes that generated those costs to either allow costs to be included in the rate base or disallow costs to be included. The audit also examines the efficiency of management and can disallow salary costs for what the audit highlights as inefficiency in decision making, etc. For example, if the procurement function does not take advantage of low bid or pricing selections, amounts can be disallowed. Similarly, inefficient processes associated with corrective and preventive maintenance also frequently have disallowed costs. The end result is a reduction of the rate increases and consequently lower utility bills for the consumer. Haig Point AND all Daufuskie Island residents should petition for such an audit to determine if costs should be disallowed. Further, our representative in the State legislature, Jeff Bradley, is on the Regulations and Admin. Procedures Committee and should be enlisted to support us in challenging this rather absurd rate increase and lobby the Public Service Commission to mandate an audit to support these reoccurring rate increases. Our State Senator, Tom Bradley is on the Legislative Oversight Committee. This rate increase will not only impact our individual water bills, but it will significantly impact the Haig Point water bills - which also come out of our pockets in the form of dues and assessments.
