So I received my water bill yesterday. Shows the reading was taken on 4/10/13. Invoice is Dated 4/30/13 and bill is due 5/19/13.

So it takes 20 days to invoice me but I have to pay it within 18 days of receiving it?

Something seems off here.

The city made the residents to install put meter outside the house. Why then do we get an estimate bill which always higher than what it is. The city should not give its' residents an estimated bill. Why does the city continue to do this?

Blue Island functions on water bill, building permit, sticker, and ticket payments for cash flow. Water bill payments are intentionally estimated high every other month to meet the city's need for cash.

This is a good place for the Vargas party to instill transparency - given there are meters each month so be based on meter readings (although -ever try to rencile the readings?). Also there is no detail beyond gallons used - how much are we being charged? How much in BI tax?

That would be a good start at a transparent government.

Current BI tax is $2.51 how ever that is subject to substantial increase unless the council opts out of the failed Jawa that never secured a water source. I propose Attorney/Mayor Elect Vargas get BI out of the JAWA and then go after ALL of BI'S municipal FUNDS due to breach of contract by the JAWA.

Blue Island adds $2.51 for every thousand gallons of water currently used by consumers.

BI has already opted out. Mike Jenko made sure of that..even through the objections of the following aldermen...Stone, Frausto, Potaska, Cheetle and Johnson.
Some of them won't be around anyway after the 14th.

With all due respect people. Water bills are cheap here in BI, at least for a home owner. for one they include garbage pick and for 2 they are due the same day every month. As a " long time resident " you should be aware of that nothing new here !

There also is a 2000 gallon minimum for residential homes also unless it was changed.

Recycle cans need to be picked up every week like the garbage.

A vote to opt out of Jawa has not occurred.

I agree. My can is full weekly. At least give out larger recycle cans.

The recycle cans are overflowing all over town. Someone needs to act.

If they can pick up grass clippings once a week, they can do the recyle can as well. But knowing Blue Island Officials, it will be another way of raising the our monthly bill once again!
Excellent Idea

The Jawa issue is a great place for the new mayor and council to begin to demonstrate to the taxpayers what they can and will do to create and implement a corrective action plan.

Do you not have a recycle garbage can that is slightly smaller than your garbage bin?

The Finance Committee should investigate this subject and report their findings to the council and community.
