Hazard Mitigation Plan

Vance County has partnered with its surrounding counties and has participated in the development of a regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan is intended to identify know areas within our jurisdictions that are susceptible to natural and manmade incidents and to address methods and practices that are intended to lessen or eliminate any impact from such occurrences. A public hearing will take place at the February Board of Commissioners Meeting and we are actively seeking input from the public as a part of this process.

Water Usage Rate Increase Effective July 1, 2016

The Vance County Water Board approved an increase in the water usage rate at their meeting June 6th.  The base fee of $30 will remain the same and the usage rate will increase from $7.19 to $9.14 per 1,000 gallons.  The average user using 3,250 gallons will see an increase of $6.34 per month on their bill.

The increase is necessary to cover 3 separate increases from the City of Henderson in the water purchase rate since April 2015 and is necessary to begin addressing the debt from the water system construction.  The District is actively seeking additional customers to help in meeting the system’s construction debt in the future.
