DONALDSONVILLE - The Ascension Parish Council deferred a resolution that recommends some utility companies in the parish not be allowed to raise rates.

Leaders delayed making a decision Wednesday night.  Instead, they pushed the resolution back to the Utilities Committee for further review.

The resolution specifically refers to wastewater treatment providers in Ascension Parish. It asked for the Public Service Commission to deny any requests from those companies to increase rates.

According to some council members, Ascension Parish has had issues with wastewater treatment providers in the past. Last year, the Department of Environmental Quality issued compliance orders to Mo-Dad Utilities, which was violating codes in six different parishes, including Ascension.
