Looks Like We’re in for Another Huge Rate Hike

At last week’s Water Board hearing we learned that so far, collections have been below expectations during every month of the current fiscal year. Chairman Moss blames the economy and conservation (!).

It wouldn’t surprise me if they try to make up for it by raising our water/sewer rates next year an astronomical amount.

As always, we’ll keep you posted.
