My father owns a rental house in west mansfield that has been empty for some time now for remodeling and he is stuck paying more than $50 a month and the water has been shut off since the last tenants moved out. All he was told is that is the way the council runs it. What a rip off!

He's paying 50$ a month for what?? If the water is off there shouldn't b a bill...that's horrible!!! My issue is the fact that our water bill will now cost as much as our electric...if they continue to raise it we are all screwed..this town will b no more!!

Your water bill also includes sewer, the monthly bill has to be paid wether someone is residing in the house or not. This is one reason the village is on fiscal emergency due to all the housing that sits empty, the cost is based on total number of residence in village.

Alot of residents in W.Mansfield do not realize that the government is the one raising the bill, not the water dept. The govn't basis it on the amount of residents zoned for that town. Your water cost will go down if you can get more people to move into your town.
