Beacon Hill Water & Sewer District


Keath Huff of Kelso is running for Beacon Hill Water & Sewer District Commissioner District Position #3.

In his announcement Huff said, “I believe that Beacon Hill Water & Sewer District has the mandate to provide quality and reliable water & sewer services at the lowest rates possible.

Based on the results of the Customer Survey for Beacon Hill & my discussions with friends & neighbors there is clearly ratepayer dissatisfaction with both rate increases & the water quality provided by Beacon Hill Water & Sewer.

I believe a commissioner must listen and be open to the possibility of change, always keeping the best interest of the district’s customers in mind. I also understand that rate increases, when necessary, must be communicated in a way that shows the benefit to the rate payer.

If the district elects me I commit to spend the time to understand the issues, always listen to and keep the rate payers as the #1 priority and work with my fellow commissioners to uphold the mandate of the district.”

Keath & his wife of 17 years have 6 children and they have lived in Lexington since 2005.
