APPLE VALLEY REVIEW
The California Public Utilities Commission ruled that Apple Valley Ranchos Water Company may raise their rates by 3.8 percent effective Jan. 1, but more increases may be on the horizon pending a final decision by the commission.
“We were hoping to have the final increase by January, but the ruling judge had more cases ahead of this one,” said Scott Weldy, general manager for Ranchos. “We could get the new ruling any time.”
