If you receive your water from the Avion Water Company, you could be in for a 16.9% rate increase as soon as next spring. Avion Vice President Jason Wick says the economy has forced the request to the Public Utilities Commission. "Increase costs that we are encountering. And everything from electrical to operations to health benefits." Wick says they had a public meeting to discuss the rate increase Wednesday night but only one person attended. He says they could receive approval from the PUC as early as March, but more likely by July first. Avion Water serves almost 11,000 residents in Bend. Their last rate increase was in 2007.
