So the following notice appeared in the Gardner news:
Water bills were mailed in December and are due TODAY!
So why couldn't this notice have been placed in the water bills?
Latest water bill:
Yep. $13.13 per thousand gallons includes a QUARTERLY service charge of $59.29 . That is $237.16 per YEAR per customer for "service". You would think that exorbitant amount would be enough to cover testing the friggin' water!
With 2000 water customers the service charge alone generates $474,320.
