Delloso urges Public Utility Commission to reject Aqua Pennsylvania’s proposed rate increase

(Aug 30, 2021)

RIDLEY PARK, Aug. 30 – State Rep. Dave Delloso, D-Delaware, submitted a public comment regarding Aqua Pennsylvania’s attempt to increase their water and sewer rates, explaining the increase would create serious financial hardships for many who are already struggling. “People are only now beginning to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19 on their lives, catching up on their mortgage, rent, utility bills and other life necessities,” Delloso said. “Add in the county’s reassessment of property, people cannot afford yet another rate increase on their already stretched budgets. This would be too much of a hardship on working families and seniors living on fixed incomes, and should not move forward.” Aqua provides water and wastewater services to more than 490,000 Pennsylvanians, mostly in Philadelphia’s collar counties. Their proposed rate increase would raise nearly half a million people’s water bills by 17% and sewer bills by 33%. Delloso said Aqua raised its rates on customers just two years ago, so another rate increase, especially at this time, is not reasonable. He strongly urged the PUC to reject Aqua’s request for an increase and encouraged Aqua customers to voice their concerns by sending a letter to the PUC, as well, at P.O. Box 3265, Harrisburg, PA 17105. Additional information is available at: Read more

Delloso announces nearly $7.5 million in state transportation funding

(Aug 04, 2021)

RIDLEY PARK, Aug. 4 – State Rep. Dave Delloso, D-Delaware, announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has awarded a $7,485,777 contract to Montgomery-based Allan Myers, LP for the repair and resurfacing of 17 roadways in Delaware, Chester and Montgomery counties. “This is welcome news for our region and, as such, I’m so happy to see these improvements already beginning to take shape,” Delloso said. “Barring any type of unanticipated delays, all of the work is slated to begin this summer and expected to be completed around this time next year. And while construction may cause short-term delays, there’s no doubt that once completed, these important improvements will provide a better driving experience in the long term.” According to Delloso, the improvements will involve milling and resurfacing 31 miles of state highway using bituminous material, plus performance micro-surfacing on deteriorated pavement joints on southbound Interstate 476 in Montgomery and Delaware counties, and on a section of northbound and southbound U.S. 202 in Chester County. The new pavements will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface. The state highways scheduled for resurfacing and other improvements include: U.S. 13 between Morton Avenue and the Delaware State Line in Trainer and Marcus Hook boroughs and the City of Chester.
