The Florida Public Service Commission hearing on Aloha Utilities' proposed multimillion-dollar-rate increase, originally scheduled for today, has been put off until next month, state Sen. Mike Fasano said Monday. Fasano, R-New Port Richey, said the commission delayed the hearing after speaking with him. The senator requested that the hearing be postponed until Aloha's customers could be represented. Aloha serves about 25,000 customers in southwest Pasco.
