New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 27, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas ★ Utilities Continued (rom Page 1A correct. “The bottom line will change (rom a negative five percent to 15 percent.” He also said LCRA, Utilities’ power supplier, has Indicated no upward changes in fuel costs at least until 1991. The largest decrease (26.26 percent) in the cost-of-service study was allocated to the two local cement plants. Sohn said, “If the cost-of-service reflects a 33 percent increase for residential customers, that should be indicative they’re not paying enough.” The same premise goes for the very large power users, who have been “paying too much for the last five years,” he added. “If we’ve been running the utility this way for years and years, why change?” Tleken asked. “It gets back to the core philosophy,” Sohn said. “If you believe everyone should pay their fair share, that’s cost-of-service,” Sohn said. “If you believe business and industry should pay more, you need to tell us that.” “What I hear the board saying is the revenue development for the Utilities as a whole was reasonable. The real concern is the distribution of the increase among the customer classes,” Thomas said. “One way is cost-of-service. The other is a series of value Judgments on which class pays how many dollars.

Tieken said, “You have two months to come up with an alternative approach.” “But we’re operating the Utilities on a false budget in the meantime,” Orr said. “If he’s not going to get a rate increase, then Bob needs to amend the budget. He can’t keep spending at the same rate he has been.” The immediate effect of the board’s action Tuesday night was felt about an hour later when Sohn withdrew the purchase of three replacement vehicles from the agenda. Board Chairman Amo Becker said he was “very disappointed” after the vote was taken on Mornhinweg’s motion. “They’ve done the best they can. We’ve told them we don’t like it, and now Ifs our responsibility.” Tieken said, “Fine.” Roger Biggers and Jeff Thompson on the Utilities staff said they would be redoing the budget, and adjusting capital projects in light of the board’s action. “If you don’t, we’re going to run out of cash,” Orr said. “Exactly” was Biggers’ only comment  _ ★ Rains_ Herald Zertung, New Braunfels,Texas ★ Commissioners.
