To: Brazos River Authority System Rate Customers
RE: Brazos River Authority System Rate Customer Workshop
You are cordially invited to attend a System Rate Customer Workshop (Workshop) on Tuesday, May 7, 2013. The Workshop will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the McLennan Community College's Conference Center
in Waco, Texas, located at 4601 North 19th Street (map enclosed).
The purpose of the Workshop is to provide our customers with an overview of how we are formulating the Fiscal Year 2014 (FY 2014) System Rate and the critical assumptions being used in our
rate making process for raw water sales. The presentation my staff will discuss at the Workshop will be essentially the same as the information discussed with our Board of Directors at its
preliminary budget workshop.
Supporting documentation and information regarding the contemplated FY 2014 System Rate will be made available to you prior to the Workshop. These materials will be available electronically on the
Brazos River Authority's (Authority) website at the following link: www.brazos.org/customer-reports.asp. Please check this link as we near the Workshop date for additional materials that may be posted
for review. Additionally, in an effort to promote productivity, the Authority will accept questions in advance of the Workshop. Please forward your questions to the Authority's CFO, Mr. John Hawes,
at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We believe this Workshop will strengthen the transparency of the Authority's business activities and provide our System Rate customers an early opportunity to ask questions about our rate making and
budgeting processes. This meeting will also lay the foundation for updates on Authority projects and related financial matters you will hear about at our Annual Customer meetings to be held later
My staff and I are pleased to incorporate this Workshop into our business practices, as we are committed to building greater communication and consensus among all of our customers.
Please RSVP to my office by calling (254) 761-3194 or by e-mailing Ms. Nancy Adams at email@example.com . We look forward to this opportunity to collectively discuss our proposed System
Rate for FY 2014.
