JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Fuel rates for JEA customers will indeed be decreasing on July 1 and the scheduled water/sewer rate increases will not go into effect.

On Tuesday, JEA's Board of Directors approved a fuel rate decrease and an elimination of the water/sewer rate increases that were scheduled for October 1. These were recommended by the JEA Finance and Audit Committee in May.
