AE2S Nexus will soon be distributing questionnaires to gather information for our 2011 North Central Utility Rate Survey. Each year, AE2S conducts surveys of water, wastewater, stormwater, and solid waste utility rates for cities throughout the region and regional water systems. The information is compiled in an easy to read report with graphs for quick comparison. The report is distributed to survey participants to use in their rate planning. Rate survey participants have indicated that the survey report is an invaluable tool for utility and finance managers to use when discussing rates with government decision makers and constituents. All survey participants receive a complimentary copy. Planned distribution of the survey questionnaires is in February. Watch your mailbox for your copy, or check our website, www.ae2s.com.
