Hypoluxo: Boynton offers lower water rate

By Willie Howard

    Boynton Beach Utilities could provide water to Hypoluxo residents at lower rates than town residents and business owners currently pay to Manalapan.
    That’s according to a rate comparison presented to Hypoluxo council members at their Aug. 17 meeting by Boynton Beach Utilities Director Colin Groff.
    According to Groff’s chart, a Hypoluxo homeowner with a 5/8-inch water meter pays a monthly base charge of $42.85 to Manalapan plus $2.34 per 1,000 gallons of water used.
    The same homeowner would pay a $12.35 monthly base charge plus $1.65 per 1,000 gallons to Boynton Beach Utilities, according to Groff. (Boynton Beach’s water rates go up after the first 9,000 gallons to encourage conservation.)
    “It was a very informative presentation, and I’ll be interested to hear the presentation by Manalapan,” Hypoluxo Vice Mayor Michael Brown said.         

Manalapan officials are scheduled to make a water-supply presentation to the Hypoluxo council on Oct. 19

It would seem that the City of Manalapan Town Council has put the city in a bind if they loose Hypoluxo residents water business. Boynton Beach now knows everything about how Manalapan runs there water department and Boynton Beach will probably strong arm Manalapan into selling them the water plant. This should be interesting.
