What do you mean, please clarify. A twenty % rate hike is a protest party looking for a place to happen. I can't think of a single person that received a 20% pay increase. If this 20% rate increase is real, I want to see posted the measures that are also on the table that are proposed to cut expenses, time to speak up people.

Was in Wednesday's paper... water dept is broke, and will go deeply into debt. They are considering a 20% rate increase to avoid oversight by the state (which would be a good thing).

A result of further mismanagement.

Just be happy that they aren't charging you for the toxins/chemicals that exceed EPA standards...yet.

WE had a rental property break a line while we was on vacation racking up some 26k (26,0000) gallons or water leaked out onto the ground and it was only $386.23

Is that for a new tap or something, or the deposite for setting a meter?

Which dept was this, or dose it apply to all of them mismanaging it?

They brought in another consultant....to tell them they were going broke...duh....and one of the recommendations is to take a 20% increase with yearly increases at the rate of CPI...WHICH IS STUPID....look they produce goods and if they are to take yearly increases it should be at the PPI level which is usually much less....But i tend to favor better mgt as the solution.

Maybe the city pool needs to buy their water from the same place.

I believe the election commissioners asked for a raise from $60 a day to $100, that's a 67% increase (100/60). Perhaps the water increase can just apply to them then?

I think they should increase it by 50% and build themselves a new building and buy those ladies that work there a smile because they sure look miserable working in their new building. I don't think they know how to smile. Come on, lets vote in a 50% increase and build the new building. I didn't see anything wrong with the old one they use to be in myself. But hey, I am just a citizen that lives here and doesn't have much water pressure anyways, so what does it matter.!!!!!

That is for those working the polls and is realy a small amount...for a very seldom expense...don't buy into the bs of those that try and make a political issue out it...and smoke screen big time expense...a 20% water bill is a big tax increase....equate it to what a property tax would be. and people need to know the diff in city and county cost...

I say let's start a public forum to gather as many people we can, to pool our resources, and get a bargain rate for a private well if you are on city water. If we get 50 familys,(50 wells) someone would surely give us a huge discount for that much work. I figure what the heck, I pay a an average $70.00 a month water bill, so off the city water, pay a monthly payment, still in the same boat, but in 7-8 years, I break even and I don't have to keep staring at rate increases, or the potential for someone to run off with the money or missappropriate funds, not to speak of poor management. Come on people, I know there must be 50-100 familys that would like to get off this resource that is going to continually go up, and it's not even yours! With a well, at least it's yours.

Does this mean they are shaving 20% off expenses, or is this a one way street?
