The ever escalating cost of municipal water
I recently, December 30, 2018, ran across a post on Facebook about the cost of water. Apparently, after I did some more reading, the individual was a new homeowner, and they wanted to do a compare and contrast with the water bills from other folks in the area.
The post got a great deal of attention – and actually, considering it was Facebook, many very thoughtful responses.
Many folks either posted a snapshot of their water bill or reported on the cost of a recent water bill, in a reply and then identified how many folks were in the family. I wrote, “Two adults and one imaginary friend: $119.23... We try to conserve water – but we are not frenzied about it.”
Sadly, the cost of water is only going to continue to go up. It’s off the hook. And there is little that local officials can do about it. I wrote an article about the spiraling costs not too long ago. Find it here: https://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/features/cc-lt-dayhoff-090918-story.html
