​Effective January 1, 2017, the Findlay Township Municipal Authority retail water rate will increase by 9% from $8.34/1000 gallons to $9.09/1000 gallons of water consumed. This increase was approved by the Findlay Township Board of Directors and helps offset a 12.6% increase that was passed on from our supplier in 2015, the Municipal Authority of Robinson Township.

​ FTMA was able to absorb some of the increase last year with the additional water usage from CONSOL Energy; however, water usage from that customer has dramatically reduced and does not appear to be a very large contributor in 2017 as drilling operations have slowed down. The rate increase will cost a family of four who uses 4000 gallons per month approximately $3.00 more a month.

​ Sincerely,
