May 28, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Gaines Center, together with the Fayette County Neighborhood Council and Citizen Kentucky, is sponsoring an educational forum at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, in the William T. Young Library auditorium on how a municipally owned water company is run. The speaker will be John Huber, CEO of the Louisville Water Company.

Mr Huber will explain how the independent board that manages his company is structured, how revenues are collected, how capital improvements are made, as well as matters relating to bonding and debt service.

It is free and open to the public.

Mr. Huber will not advocate any action by the city of Lexington; he will simply explain Louisville's experience with a municipally-owned water company.

This is an outstanding opportunity for the citizens of Fayette County to become better informed about an issue that may well be one of the most important issues will face in this decade.

The moderator for the evening will be Buck Ryan, head of Citizen Kentucky and faculty member in UK's School of Journalism and Telecommunication.

For more information, call (859) 257-1537.
