The price of butane gas went down today and another utility bill that won’t see an increase is water for a year. The Belize Water Services Limited made a proposal to the Public Utilities Commission that there should be no Annual Review Proceeding to determine tariffs which means that water rates remain unchanged for the period from April first, to March thirty first, 2014. The PUC agreed that there were no exceptional circumstances to warrant an increase. So essentially, your water bill will be calculated at the same rate as it was last month.

The Public Utilities Commission sent out a press release today announcing that consumers will not have to pay any additional fees for water usage. According to the release, the PUC upheld a request from Belize Water Services not to hold an Annual Review Proceeding which would have determined the water rates and fees for relates services for the period of April first of this year and ending on March 31st, 2014.

The PUC, in a statement issued, said that in accordance with the bylaws on Water and Sewage Tariffs "there was no exceptional circumstances to warrant that an ARP be initiated on the PUC’s own volition and accepted BWS’ proposal." As a result, water rates will remain the same which means that consumers on the mainland who consume less than 1,000 US gallons of water only will only pay $8.00. Consumers of water and sewer services in Belize City and Belmopan will remain paying $9.60. Consumers in San Pedro will still pay $23.45 while those in Caye Caulker will continue to pay $23.00 base on the consumption of less than 1,000 US gallons of water.
