Survey responses needed

Thu, 02/01/2018 - 4:30pm

The Block Island Water Company and Sewer District will soon be mailing out a confidential income survey for its service area in order to qualify for lower-rate municipal loan programs that will help fund system upgrades and improvements for the district — and to keep rates stable. The survey will be mailed to the boxes of 188 homes in the service area within the next week. In order to qualify for the lower-rate loans, the Water and Sewer companies will need a 69 percent response rate to the survey. If you receive the survey, please take a few moments to respond and return. Respondents do not need to be a property owner or account holder to participate, and will be a great help to the Block Island community. Responses are strictly confidential and conducted by an independent company with no affiliation or ties to Block Island.
