Wonder how much my water bill will go up if at all?
Does anyone on here have some insight on this issue?
Informed post welcomed.

It's already been discussed and your bill will go up about $.60 per 100 gallon.

Maybe Richmond should take lessons from the PWSD. They've built a top notch company with several times over of pipe in the ground supplying way more people than richmond city water does and it all works. And they've done it out of the same little hole in the wall building in our city for how many years now. I think it's fair to say they've earned the new building!!!

That little hole in the wall building needs to be condemned. I don't think the building would have anything to do with the business being successful,don't you think the men who do the work of keeping the water going in all those lines would be the ones to earn.

I think that is exactly what I meant. Those men deserve a new place to work out of they've done great things with very little. Our city should take notes!

What are you talking about, Richmond has a brand new building for its employees to work out of. Do you really think a fancy building makes the service or people more efficient, as along as the facility is a safe comfortable place to work, invest the money in new tools and equipment to make it easier on the employees, to provide better, or expanded service, or reduce rates.

You still don't get it my point is the building makes no difference it is the people who work there and run it. The city water is years behind the county. The county worried about the water and not their image so they stayed in a tiny little building for at least the past twenty years. Yet Richmond blows their cash on impressing people with new buildings and water towers. Yet still our water system is plauged with problems which no one can deny. When the city has a problem they can't figure out they call the county, that is a fact!

The lights on the new building are blinding.Being so close to the highway they are a distraction. I am sure security is an issue...but so is safety.

After your complete explaination I get what you are saying and agree totally. Hope the city has learned and in the future can operate in a responsible manner, I guess they will be forced to, in the short term with the poor economy, since there won't be much revenue to pay for extras.

How much is the per gallon rate? Just curious.

Our water bill is the only one that I can't pay online. It would be nice to be able to. Is there any discussion about a website?

That might raise the rates.

It does cost a little bit, I am sure, to accept online payments. But why not just charge a small fee for those who choose to use that option, to pay for it? Then those who don’t use it won’t have an increase.

The city has really kept itself out of the loop on this issue also. Anything you have to pay for, or apply for, or fill out a form for could be done online, like it is in other cities, but for some reason Richmond never quite gets anything like this done. Poor customer service.

Anyone can pay any bill on-line. I pay all my bills on-line through my bank. Very easy to do. Go see or call your bank and they can show you how. It cost nothing to do.
