I will have to say that it is absolutely ridiculous what our local government is able to get away with! I have never had a water/sewer bill before so when I moved to Boger City it took some getting used to. I always thought it was a little odd that the bill was issued as of the 1st of the month but late charges started if it wasn't paid by the 10th OF THAT SAME MONTH.
Recently I lost the small square slip that contained the stub for my water/sewer bill. Well the payment slipped my mind for a couple of days and I ended up paying the bill a little late. When I realized how much they were charging me for paying the bill a mere 27 days after it was issued I was furious!
What started as a 36.86 bill turned into 76.86 over the period of 15 days! 40 bucks! Now, this may not seem like a lot to a few, however; during an economic stuggle this amount can mean feeding your family for two days....or well...not.
There has to be something we can do about this. Denver residents that are sitting on county run water and sewer aren't following NEAR as harsh rules or fees! Does anyone feel my pain on this one?

well, I hate it happened to you.
just try not to be late again they will say you making a habit of it and cut your water off, then make you pay a hook up fee and all plus the late bill. the power bills are worse also now, so PLEASE! do not whatever you do, be late on them.
YOU WILL pay big time for that mistake also.

The Humanure Handbook gives new meaning to sh!t on a shingle. Ha ha ha.

The bill itself it understandable; however, the fees are riduculous. I'm also curious how my sewer tends to be more expensive than my actual water....

The city water is very nasty. I can't even drink fountain drinks from restaurants in town because of the nasty water. Someone should put a stop to it. Nasty. Nasty!!!

Well I've never been on city utilities so never knew they were that high. They are just taking advantage of ppl. I know all city water I have tasted is nasty.I love my well water. Where I live I have my own well n septic system so I only pay for the power which never reaches $100. a month summer or winter. Maybe you should try finding a place out of the city limits if you are renting.

I USED TO LIVE IN LINCOLNTON AND STILL HAVE FAMILY THERE. YA'LL THINK YOU HAVE IT BAD. I LIVE IN WELCH, WV NOW AND THE WATER HERE SUCKS, CANT EVEN DRINK IT FOR THE MUD IN IT AND THE CITY CHARGES A MANDATORY 70 BUCKS EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT USING THE WATER. HAVE A FRIEN THAT HAS A HOUSE IN THE CITY LIMITS THEY DONT EVEN LIVE IN AND JUST SITTING THERE AND THEY CHARGE HER 70 BUCKS A MONTH. NOW OF COURSE I LIVE WITHING THE CITY LIMITS OF WELCH AND NOT ONLY IS MY WATER BILL ALMOST 100.00 OR MORE A MONTH IT IS JUST RIDICLIOUS. I WOULD MUCH RATHER PAY 30 SOME DOLLERS THAN 100 AND SOME.

I don't flush it often. I have a couple of big bushes behind my house and I just hang it out of the winder and let it fly. Ain't nobody sees it but me and it keeps the water bill reasonable.

I have not counted how many times we flush in a month. Our water is the same amount as our sewer.$1.19 per day is what we pay for water alone for bathing, flushing, washing, everything. The average standard toilet holds 5 gallons, I assume? Flushing the toilet will be double just like everything else, because it does not matter how much water you use, you are charged the same amount for sewer.
