The number of local utility customers interested in Equal Payment Plan (EPP) billing, fell short of the number needed to make the concept economically feasible Minden Mayor Tommy Davis said Monday.
Of the 6,500 to 7,000 utility customers for the City of Minden, 1,422 responded to the survey, asking if they are interested in a form of levelized billing for all their city utilities.
"Every one got a survey if they had a meter – water, electric or both," Davis said. "We made them available at city hall and in the newspaper. We tried to make them available to everybody."
Once the survey results were in, Davis said he talked with each council member and they were in agreement.
