I live in Tecumseh and usually pay 165.00 a month for average billing and this month it was 274.00. I have never missed a payment and the Tecumseh utility department don't explain the reason for the increase except that the computers crashed. I want answers and I keep being told the same thing over and over again. I also don't agree that the customers of the Tecumseh utility dept. should be charged the extra $6.00 a month for the new computer system. We did not opt. for the new system and it isn't our fault that the computers crashed. They told me I had to pay the amount due on my bill and didn't offer to work with me on the payment at all. I am very unhappy and I will be looking to move out of this town very soon in the near future. The bills here just keep going up with all of the Tecumseh utility dept. add on's. The Tecumseh Utility dept. is scamming their customers to pay off their outstanding bill with the city of Shawnee. This is a terrible!!! Something needs to be done about this.

WOW. All of the AVERAGE bills seem outrageous to me, much less the "inflated" ones. I live about 3-5 miles away, in the south end of Shawnee, and my average is $100, in the middle of summer. With the a/c on. In an old 2 story house. You have my sympathy.

What a shame no one in city hall would offer a response, but I understand that is a order in town to never talk to media, since in the past folks representing the city may have volunteered to much information that they didn't want the citizens to know
