The Water Provider Legislative Task Force (“Task Force”) has scheduled a meeting for July 11th.

The meeting will be held in Room 151 of the State Capitol.

The Task Force was created by Act 1056 during the 89th Arkansas General Assembly. The legislation declared a number of findings regarding the water utilities provision of water to state residents. Issues associated with areas served, ability to operate monopolies, importance of water supply to economic development, requirements to supply out-of-area customers and other matters were addressed.

The meeting notice issued by the Arkansas Bureau of Legislative Research indicates that meeting topics will include a focus on the direction of the Task Force going forward from this point. Also included will be a discussion of the draft Vision Statement.
