ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Montgomery County officials are holding a work session on a study about how rate increases for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission compare to other utilities around the nation.

The council’s Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy and Environment Committee is meeting Thursday morning.

Officials in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties agreed last year that the WSSC should hire a consultant to perform a benchmark study.

The study was the result of concern over the company’s staffing and rate increases over the past decade.

The study began in December and was completed in June. Staffs from both counties and the WSSC took part in the benchmarking review group.
