PGS Rate Hike = 28%; Pleasanton Water Rate Hike = ?

Original post made by Billie, Mohr Park, on May 1, 2009

PGS rates just increased 14%; when curbside recycling is implemented, should you opt for the larger garbage bin, your rate will increase another 14%.

"or slightly higher water rates or tiers for higher use customers."

Rate hikes for all you water hogs and those who don't pay attention to leaks in your irrigation systems, etc.! Those of us who already conserve water always get punished for our good deeds when asked to reduce another 20% and then they raise the general rate.

No one pays attention to the waste of limited resources unless it hits them in the pocket book.
