It seems clear that city residents will be paying more for water in 2009. Lawrence city commissioners raised no objections to a proposed 12 percent water rate increase during a study session this afternoon.
Copy and paste the link:
My water bill is already more than my electric bill and is approaching my phone bill. Enough already!
Ahhhhhhhh, Lawrence.The powers that be never learn just tax.
Bleepity, bleep, bLEEP, BLEEEEEP!!! Fo' seriously? My bill is already outrageous! Nice....
I didn't know we got our water out of the Kansas River. Is that safe?
I am going to ask for a 12% raise too!
and this is not a joke? I am sure there is a joke some where in this, these people running this town can not be this this this give me a word people none of mine are printable.
uh... the 12 percent is to pay for all the land take over and construction they are going to be doing as they spend millions of dollars laying new water pipes around north lawrence and out to the airport.
Does this mean we aren't going to have to vote on sales tax increases? Is this because I said I was going to contact Jimmy Carter to monitor the polls? I know, it makes it sound like I am important and people actually read these messages.
most cities along the river get their water from the river. manhattan drinks out of it, then dumps its sewer waste in the river. Topeka does the same, as do we. So, if the 12 % is making sure our treatment facilities are top-notch, I am ok with that. But, 12 % is a pretty big hike.
I put in a 1.5 gpm shower head with an interrupter. That'll drop the water bill.
