RE: water meters

I think you'd end up with a tax levy or a wage attachment - especially if
it's considered part of property tax.  They couldn't cut off the well but
they could garnish wages or eventually even auction off the property for
non-payment of taxes.  I stand up for what I believe in, but I've learned to
choose my fights, and I don't think this would be worth it!

We use about 8000 gallons of water a quarter (city water), pay about $25/qtr
for it, and about $600/yr tax for the sewer we don't have.  We pay the
county for the water, the city for the property tax including sewer footage

I tend to be a contrarian and just must ask.  
What happens if you just refuse to pay it?  
It's not as if they can cut off your water!

Here in the midst of the great metropolitan sprawl, 40 miles north of

York City, we have neither public water nor sewage.  We are very
that our well supplies good water ..........To top it all, we are
a "water tax" each year when we pay our local 
property tax.  It isn't a lot - about $150/year.  The first few years we

lived here I protested, but was always told "maybe someday the town will
water up your road, so you have to pay the tax." Of course they never
but I finally decided life was too short to get all het up about
something I 
was never going to win. But in 33 years we have paid quite a bit of
Only $9.95 per month!
