Water utility rates????
My local water board recently (this month) switched to monthly billing ( it was previously a quarterly cycle). They advised customers might notice a "slight" increase in their rates.
We used to pay about 200 dollars per YEAR for our water and sewer tax. This month's bill was $50 and my usage was comparable to the average over the past 3 years (approx 6000 gallons for the 30 day period). I took the trouble to calculate the price per gallon and it shocked me to find we actually pay $.08 per GALLON for our water.
Is this happening elsewhere or am I just in a district that has figured out a way to bleed its customers beyond the norm??
I figure that I could QUICKLY pay for a private WELL to supply my home and just use the city water for drinking and washing dishes!!!
