Water and Sewer Rates Going Up in Eureka
Kiem TV reported last night on a proposal by the City of Eureka to raise water and sewer rates. Someone on the show mentioned the average rate per household is something like $70 or $80 a month.
I'd always wondered about that. I try to skimp on water usage, and stopped flushing the toilet every time I'd go pee years ago. A friend asked me why we didn't flush the toilet. I simply told him that water costs money. How much we save by doing that, I don't know.
If the average rate is higher than ours, I suppose we must save some money. I guess I shouldn't complain about our monthly bill usually being around $50.00. It will kinda irk me, though, to pay more when I still try to scrimp and save water.
