What is your opinion on the city’s proposal to raise water and sewage rates by 4 percent?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 14, 2012
“I would just take less showers, I guess.”
“I’d go for 2 percent. They always ask for more than they need.”
“The sewage bill is too high. I would say call it the sewage bill and not the water bill because the water is half what the sewer is.”
“That’s unfortunate because if I am going to be paying more money I am going to have to be making more money and I have yet to figure out how to do that. I guess I won’t be filling a swimming pool by myself.”
