JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Missouri regulators will hold public hearings in southwestern Missouri’s Joplin and other cities perhaps affected by rate increases sought by utility Missouri American Water.

The Joplin Globe (https://bit.ly/1O1ADEu) reports that the Missouri Public Service Commission will hold a meeting at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 26 at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin. Other sessions will be in Jefferson City, Branson, Warrensburg, St. Joseph, St. Louis County and in other areas served by Missouri American.

Missouri American filed water and sewer rate cases last July with the commission seeking to increase annual operating revenues by roughly $51 million statewide.

Under the new rate proposals, some communities will see rates increase while others will see decreases.
