IML lotion for Shin Disease To The Patrons of the Indianapolis Water Cos. The Indianapolis Water Company has filed its petition with the Public Service Commission, asking for a small increase in water rates. The increase sought will amount to only a few cents per month to the average domestic user, but however slight, it will affect all of our many customers and we take this method of ac quainting our patrons with the conditions which necessitate an in creased revenue to this Company. The Indianapolis Water Company, as a public utility, is ob ligated to provide the City of Indianapolis, its people and its en terprises with a sufficiency of pure water for domestic, industrial and municipal purposes. Its duty extends not only to the In dianapolis of today, but to the Indianapolis of tomorrow as well. Fulfillment of this obligation to serve means a constantly increas ing investment in pumping capacity, filtration facilities and street mains to safeguard the future of a thriving and prosperous City. Upon the efficient functioning of this Company depends not only the convenience of our people, but also the protection of property against fire and, to a degree, the health of the community. Reasonable Rates The “reasonable rate” which a utility is entitled to charge for its product is one that will meet the actual costs of operations, including taxes, protect the physical properties as against de preciation and pay a reasonable return upon the fair value of the properties used and useful in the enterprise. The “reasonable return” that a utility should receive is a rate of return that will induce capital to enter the business—that will enable a utility to attract the additional capital needed for street main extensions and other additions to the property. , The present schedule of rates as allowed by the Public Serv ice Commission gave this Company approximately $125,000 annual increased revenue. This amount was required to provide a reasonable rei urn upon the property after meeting an operating expense based upon the experience of the year 1919. During the year 1920, however, this Company encountered the same upward trend of costs which has wrought havoc with all forms of domestic, commercial and industrial enterprises. Increased Taxes Not only have materials and labor advanced, but State, County and City Taxes have risen to unprecedented heights. The City, County and State Taxes of the Indian apolis Water Company for the year 1920 will amount to $244,000, as against the sum of $157,897.49 for the year 1919. This marked increase in taxes, exceeding $86,000 for the year, could not have been anticipated by the Public Service Commission in it order last fixing water rates. We wish the public to appreciate this fact— that the Public Service Commission after investigation allowed us additional reve nues for the year in the amount of $125,000, and unexpected increased taxes for the year have absorbed over $86,000 of this relief. Other costs have aided in practically wiping out the total ad ditional revenues to which the Commission found we were en titled. During the year our Company lias been favored by an ad vantageous coal contract and lias not been compelled to pay the peak prices which have obtained during recent months. When this contract expires we will encounter much higher coal prices— even if we are able to secure suitable coal at the prices established by the Special Food and Fuel Commission. Betterments During the year 1920 this Company has expended $320,000 in additions and betterments to the property. The requirements of the City for the year 1921, if properly met, will involve a further investment of about $600,000. To protect against a shortage of filtered water during the summer months we propose to begin at once the construction of a ten-million-gallon storage reservoir, which will cost about $285,000. This heavy investment will mean protection to the public, but will not add to the revenues of the Company. We should expend, also, during the year over $200,000 for street main extensions. The extensive betterments planned will require additional capital, which must be secured at the high interest rates prevail ing and can only be secured upon a showing of satisfactory earn ings. Every citizen is directly interested in seeing this Water Company keep abreast of the City’s splendid growth. The Com pany appreciates the important part it must play in the progress and development of the City of Indianapolis. It seeks in its present petition only such added revenues as are required to en able it to maintain the high standard of service which has attend ed its operations. The average increase asked of domestic users is only a slight increase per month. We hopefully ask the co-operation of our patrons ih the mat ter of the pending petition. Very respectfully, INDIANAPOLIS WATER COMPANY.
