RE: Re: Fwd: Price of Gas-OT< now price of water

Just have to throw in my 2 cents here.  Everywhere I've ever lived we had
metered water charges- until I moved to California (you know the state that
constanting is having battles over water, where fish die due to lack of
water, and where shortages are threatened regularly).  We have a flat rate
water bill- no matter how much water you use.  Ridiculous.  Well- finally
last fall they started installing meters- but won't actually start using
them for billing until another year goes by.  Why? Who knows.
Maybe this was a decision that the Board of Equalization came up with??

Hi Kitty--I envy you your water/sewer bill.  Ours is figured on a base  of
5000 gal/month water usage.  If you go over that you pay 2.00/1000 gal.
Sewer is priced at 2/3 of water usage, my base billing each month is over
52.00, and that doesn't include garbage removal.  However, I'm partially to
blame for the cost.  When I moved to this town, you couldn't see through the
water it was so brown and chunky, but passed all the state tests for
potability.  We now have water you don't have to chew and you can actually
see through it.  Rich in Z-5, where it is raining just a little bit, but
will turn to snow later.
