Water Rate Protest Form

On December 3, 2013 TAMER sent in 1103 signatures on protest sheets to the TCEQ by registered, return receipt mail. The number of petitions we sent is great, but we need to redouble our efforts to get as many as possible.

As before please continue to get signed petitions, mail them to TAMER, P. O. Box 1590, Chandler, Texas 75758 and as we get several hundred will send them registered mail with a cover letter. Also attached is a copy of the protest form.

November Meeting Change

The November 2013 monthly meeting has been moved to the 14th at 7PM. The meeting will take place at the Wildewood Community Center next to the lake boat ramp as always.

T.A.M.E.R Update

1. ANNUAL MEETING -  We have now set the Annual Meeting for Saturday October 5, 2013. The meeting will be held at:
West Lake Baptist Church 
Fellowship Hall
1439 FM 315 South
Chandler, Texas 75758 

The church is located approximately 5 1/2 miles south of the intersection of SR 31 & FM 315 in Chandler, Texas.  If you are approaching from the south on SR 155 you would turn left(west) onto FM 3506 at Coffee City. Proceed west on FM 3506 to where it intersects FM 315 and turn right(north) onto FM 315 and go about 5 miles and the church will be on your right (east). If you need additional directions please let me know and I will provide them. Chandler is only 12 miles from downtown Tyler and there are numerous good motels should you desire to stay over. Excellent restaurants and the Rose Garden are available. The church is just off of Lake Palestine. 

We will have large signs on the right-of-way that same TAMER with an arrow.

Time - Registration will be at 11 AM and we will serve lunch at approximately noon. 

WE NEED YOUR RESERVATIONS STARTING NOW SO THAT WE CAN PLAN ADEQUATELY FOR FOOD, DRINKS, TABLES, AND HANDOUTS. We would hope that at least one (1) person from each group will be present and we would welcome more. Even if you have not been active before we need your help and input now.

Lunch will be provided by the BBQ team that has worked with us before and if you go away hungry it will be your fault. 
Cost - A donation of $8/plate or person is asked and more will be accepted. Whatever BBQ is left over will be sold to those who want it. We will have ribs, sausage, brisket and all the trimmings.  

Agenda - The business meeting will follow lunch and we promise to have you back on the road no later than 4 PM.  David Frederick, our attorney, will be the lead for the meeting and perhaps some of his staff will also be there. No Politicians are being invited to speak, since this is strictly a business meeting to cover numerous items some of which are:
a.  The new laws & how they will affect us.
b.  The potential for an upcoming rate increase letter in November 2013 to be effective in January 2014. 
c.  Electing Board members
d.  The immediate need to raise money to continue the fight.
e.  Establishing go to people in each subdivision, town, etc.

Obviously there will be more to cover.

Gov. Rick Perry filed SB 567 and HB 1600

Gov. Rick Perry filed SB 567 and HB 1600 without signature. The PUC will take over the rate making for water rate cases from the TECQ. This is good news for water customers but the Gov. did voice some hesitance to the change. You can read the press release at the below link.
