Local Values, Local Control
As a public utility, Spring Valley Utilities is governed by a 3 person commission comprised of Spring Valley residents who are customers of the utility, and who are familiar with its operations and services.
Decisions about the operation and rates of Spring Valley Utilities are made by community members, at open, public meetings. Because utility decisions get made locally, the utility is better positioned to respond to the community’s needs, while building on its strengths and advancing its values.
And whether a customer has a compliment or complaint, he or she can discuss the issue locally, and they can be assured that their voice will be heard.
