Time Within Which to File its 2012 Annual Report )
ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE ANNUAL REPORT
Issue Date: April 3, 2013 Effective Date: April 3, 2013
On March 20, 2013, Lake Region Water & Sewer Company (“Lake Region”) filed an application requesting an extension of time until July 31, 2013, to file its annual report. On April 2, 2013, the Commission’s Staff filed a recommendation indicating its support for an extension until July 31, 2013.
Commission Rule 4 CSR 240-3.640 requires all water companies to submit an annual report to the Commission on or before April 15 of each year. However, that rule allows a company to request an extension of greater than thirty days by filing a pleading before April 15, stating the reason for and the length of the requested extension.
Lake Region’s pleading meets the requirements of the rules and the relief the company requests is reasonable. Therefore, the Commission will extend the time within which Lake Region shall file its 2012 annual report to July 31, 2013.
THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:
1. The deadline for Lake Region Water & Sewer Company to file its 2012 annual report is extended until no later than July 31, 2013.
2. This order shall become effective immediately upon issuance.
BY THE COMMISSION
Michael Bushmann, Regulatory Law Judge,
by delegation of authority pursuant to
Section 386.240, RSMo 2000.
on this 3rd day of April, 2013.
