RE: Water bill ... I need to total up all my water bills for this year and see just what it has cost this household !!! And I didn't even have a garden to water this year ....

Also of note: On the right hand side of the bill it lists city hall hours !!! with FRIDAY being 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM !!!! Yea, right !!!!

These city hall 'workers' get a three day weekend now EVERY WEEK -- next week, it is a three day work week with FOUR DAY WEEKEND... more than some people get for a paid vacation per year ......

Life is great if you're a city hall employee !!!!!!

You people would really be crying if you lived in Malden. We get water bills every month and we have to pay for blue bags.

I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE IN MALDEN. Paying water bills monthly would be great at least you can budget the water bills. I just paid $3k in water bills in October and in June they were $1K now they are back to $1K for just 2 months.(3 separate bills) how can anybody budget paying 5 bills in one year. We were not due to pay any until after January 2013!

And now you are getting me started about blue bags. Well, I WANT BAGS IN EVERETT, the city wants us to pay $150 extra for a trash barrel each year and even if I bought several there is never enough. BUT if I had trash bags at least I could get all my trash out. And we are to be fine if our barrels are not closed! I already had 2 white kitchen size bags dumped on top of my barrels which leaked all over them and I had to clean them, not the City. I only use green trash bags

SICK OF EVERETT!!!!

Are you saying that you pay over 5K a year in water? Do you own a 5 family house?

All these cities are corrupt now. We are all like indentured servants. Pay, pay, pay for all the city workers. But, don't apply for a city job with credentials because you will just get passed over for some department head's friends and family. Sick of Malden.

I have 7 people including 3 teens in a 2 family and I pay about 400.00 every quarter. either something is wrong with the meter or you have a lot of people in the 4 family.

This seems excessively high .... We had teens here at one time - but they were told that when they took a shower they could not run the water 'forever.' Run water, wet body, then shut off water while soaping up and shampooing....Run water and rinse off (Yea I know they 'cheated' sometimes) but this saves gallons and gallons of water....Use water settings on the washing machine (low, medium, high)..... This works and saves big $$$$$$$... Just a thought .....

You might have a water leak. Even for rental property that's very very high.

I guess we are all paying for that beautiful fountain. Maybe we can start taking showers in that.

Its worth the city spending money on stamps, look at the money that comes in monthly not quarterly! Big bucks!
