Letter to the editor: Utilities too high

To the editor:

Whoa! On raising the water bills in Lawrence. I am grateful to have my own small home, but my water bill has been terribly high the last few months: $99 a month. I have a 900-1,000 square-foot home and have a set income — Social Security, which isn’t much. I am also over 60 and on disability. My bill should definitely not be this high. Maybe some of the extra fund money could be allocated for elderly trying to remain in their homes. Utilities seem to be “crowding” me out of my home.

Rita Moses,
