A public meeting hosted by the Water Service Corporation of Kentucky is scheduled for Thursday. The meeting will provide a public forum for customers to communicate with utility management. The meeting is scheduled to be held at 6 p.m. at the Middlesboro Community Center.

Representatives of WSCK and its corporate parent, Utilities, Inc., will be in attendance to discuss recent utility activities and customer concerns.

While being presented as an annual affair, the meeting comes during a time where increases in water/sewer bills are becoming a concern. Middlesboro city officials are aware that some citizens have received larger than normal bills recently.

According to the city’s Facebook page, there has been an increase in the sewer bill that is maintained by the city, which took place recently and was publicized. This billed amount for sewage is based on the amount of water that is used by a customer.

The post states that Middlesboro Mayor Rick Nelson spoke to the Water Service Corporation of Kentucky (WSCK) on Tuesday. The WSCK handles billing, distribution and maintenance.

The WSCK explained to the mayor that if you have higher than normal water usage showing on your bill to call 1-844-310-5556 to have them re-read the meter. If the usage changes, it will be reflected in the billed amount on the sewage.
