Thousands of Johnson County residents facing a potential water rate increase can give their opinion on the hike during an upcoming public hearing.

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, the state board that will consider a request to raise Indiana American Water rates, will host a public hearing at Franklin Community High School at 6 p.m. April 8. The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, which represents consumers in rate increase requests, will present an information session at 5:30 p.m., outlining the process for rate changes.

The proposed rate increase would cost $2.45 for most consumers using 5,000 gallons a month, according to a news release from the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor.
