Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor has filed a lawsuit against the Kansas Corporation Commission, and its Commissioners individually alleging that the Commissioners of that agency violated the Kansas Open Meeting Act (KOMA).

The action seeks injunction relief concerning the rate increase for Howison Heights, Inc., previously approved by the Commission.  The impact of the injunction would void action taken by the KCC resulting in a near 50% rate hike to consumers of the water district.

The lawsuit seeks other relief consistent with the KOMA.

The primary purposes of this action are to ensure that both the statutory provisions of the KOMA are adhered to and the purpose of the Act, governmental transparency, is enforced.
