Seniors need to read the fine print carefully in the proposed water rate changes. Note that the 20% senior discount goes away if you exceed 40 Ccf in water usage for a two month period. This includes the discount for water AND SEWER use. For me that means no discount during the summer watering months. Using 2009 usage, my charges increase by almost FORTY percent during the March thru October period. Total increase for the year is 26% for me.
I guess I can let the grass and garden dry up. The new rates seem like an outrageous increase to me.
