Water bills to go up

July 14, 2008 · Comment on this

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.

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.
