The City of Milan AATO (Local Water Authority) passes updated Area Plan. Investments of ?800 million
The Milan City Council approved today the motion to accept the Area Plan updating proposal adopted by the Milan AATO (Local Water Authority), setting the annual adjustments of the water rates. The Area Plan involves planning actions until 2027, for investments totalling more than €800 million to improve water quality and usability. For 2011, the Area Plan involves raising the average baseline rate from € 0.54 to € 0.60 per cubic metre: this is an adjustment to the average rate but it does not mean that Milanese citizens will have to pay the same 11% increase on their water bill. MM estimates a possible average increase of about €1.00 per month per family on the rates bill. The sustainability index of the water rates bill on the average Milanese income is 0.32% compared to a national average of 0.76%. The rate is set according to Legislative Decree 152/2006, making it compulsory to consider the quality of the water, the service provided, infrastructure, investments, necessary alterations and water management costs. The water rates in Milan were unchanged from 2001 to 2008 and are still very much at the low end in Italy and up to half the rates in cities like Bologna or Turin. The first goal of these adjustments is to finance the investments required to make sure that water remains a public utility, which this Council is resolute about: without these resources, the water utility companies would be forced to raise funds on the market, which would mean losing public control.

21 June 2010The Annual Meeting approves the 2009 accounts. The new Board appointed. Lanfranco Senn was confirmed as Chairman. The annual general meeting of MM spa was held today to approve the 2009 financial statement and appoint the new Board of Directors: Vittorio Belingardi, Vincenzo La Russa, Giuseppe Mele, Lanfranco Senn and Maria Elisabetta Serri. Lanfranco Senn was confirmed as Chairman. The Company basically broke even thanks to the Waterworks and Wastewater Services and the start-up of transport contracts with the Municipality. Income decreased in 2009 due to the out-of-jurisdiction contracts being split between two companies during the year, in application of the Bersani Decree; it was also caused by the long brief to define the Service Contract signed in October. One of MM’s strengths and certainly a source of pride is its performance both in the Waterworks and Wastewater Services using an accurate information system dealing with costs and service quality, and in the engineering field that is providing faster and more transparent information on action plans and work progress. MM aims to innovate its image more and more, taking account of the achieved results and the available resources. “We are looking to 2010 with optimism,” declared the Chairman, Lanfranco Senn. “We estimate a higher profit thanks to increased involvement in the public transport expansion plan both in the second section of the M5 and the start-up of the M4. We may also play an active part in completing some of the works for the Expo 2015. Furthermore,” continued Senn, “we started up a number of internationalization activities in 2009 and at this moment, these have enabled us, in association with other companies, to pre-qualify for the Baghdad underground project. In Thessaloniki we are finalizing the design of the electromechanical systems of the new Metro. We also have contacts with Albania, Romania, Tunisia, Israel, Columbia and India.” e all’avvio delle commesse con il Comune...
