Thanks! We got our first bill today and we thought it was a little high at nearly $140 from may 16 - June 20. I'm gonna call them tomorrow and get it checked!

The problem in the city is they charge the sane rate for sewage as water. Elsewhere, that is unheard of! Sewage is usually a percentage, around half or less than water consumption. So when you are watering your garden/flowers or washing your car, you're still paying sewage on it! This city is so thirsty it's ridiculous!

Do you vote? There is an opportunity every few years to clean house and get new blood into office. If you continue to elect the same people into office, you will get the same results.

I think it is time for an outsider who has no ties to the town to come in and make some changes. That will be the only way to get the town moving in the right direction.

I do agree that the water and sewer bills in this town are out of control.$120.00 per month is just crazy.

When I complained of the sewage rates and that I isdd water that did not go into the sewage, they gladly offered to set me another meter for usage for gardening and what not for a fee of around $1400! I also put tape over my meter, took readings each month myself, and they never even removed the tape. I then took in and showed them the actual usage verses the usage showing on my bill, and was told they sometimes just estimate usage compared to the previous month's average or yearly usage. What a crock! Just preying on the entire city knowing many will not take note of their left-handedness and just pay without question. I agree.sometjing needs to be done. Get these folks out of there! They are ALL crooks! When I lived in the county, as a family of SIX our water bill NEVER topped $50 a month.

This town is full of this type of thing. The electric company, water company and things have you over a barrel. No matter what they do or say, they can rip you off, and you either take it or you do without.
And, no attorney will help you if they have done something illegal. They fear the repercussions. I wish I had good news, and could say this could be fought and won, but from what I have seen, it can't.
Sorry about that guys. Rant over,
