New worries are being voiced about a possible spike in what have been low rates and a lost incentive for businesses

LITTLETON — Along with concerns about costs to taxpayers and ratepayers from the town’s lawsuit against Littleton Water and Light, new worries are being voiced about a possible spike in what have been low rates and a lost incentive for businesses if LWL loses the litigation and its business model is destroyed. Select Board members remain hopeful that won’t happen.The town is currently awaiting a decision at Grafton Superior Court, which is being asked through a motion for summary judgment from the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration to declare LWL a department of the town.
