Xenia board hopes to sell out
May 14, 2010
The Fort Dodge Messenger reports that the board of the Xenia Rural Water District wants to sell the system to the Des Moines Water Works for $110.5 million
. The district has a large amount of debt and is trying to raise rates to keep up. It's also trying to renegotiate some of its debt
to smooth the way for a sale to DMWW. Almost 90% of the system
was constructed using long-term debt financing.
