Orville Bevel, president of Greater Lake Palestine Council and the Wildwood Homeowners association, said the meeting will allow the TECQ to explain procedures that have to be followed to protest a rate increase and gives those apposing the rate a chance to voice concerns and get them on record.

Bevel said at least 25 subdivisions and three cities are involved in the protest.Their organization T.A.M.E.R., Texans against Monarch Excessive Rates has gathered to combat 40 percent increase in water, and 53 percent increase in water and sewer services rates.
"When I got my first bill under the new rate, my water jumped $27," he said."This is outrageous."
Bevel said that in Smith, and Henderson County around Lake Palestine, there are nearly 6,000 house holds using Monarch Water Utilities.
'This impacts a lot of people," he said.

Orville Bevel, president of Greater Lake Palestine Council and the Wildwood Homeowners Association, said that many residents living in the area of the rate change were not properly notified their bills would increase.

Bevel told the audience of more that 100 that his water bill went from $47.12 in September for 4,000 gallons of water to $60.78 in October for 3,000 gallons of water.
"That's $230 more on average I'm going to be paying for water," he told the TCEQ.

In an earlier phone interview, Orville Bevel, president of the Greater Lake Palestine Council and a Wildwood citizen, said Tecon is allowed to have a monopoly because Texas law states a certificate of convenience number can be awarded to only one company in an area and no other water company can service that area.

At Thursday's meeting he told the TCEQ attorneys and the audience that he had lived all over the United States, and Tecon is the worst water company he has had.
"I feel that I am paying for a Jaguar and getting the quality and service of a Yugo," he said.
Bevel went on to challenge TCEQ to make Tecon provide good quality water at a reasonable price.
"I have no problem with a company making a decent profit, but gouging the individual homeowner and small business is deplorable," he said.
