I bet the city has been making money hand over fist during this drought. Not to mention they have raised rates thru the roof over the past few years.;
The top five water bills for one month range from $1,800 to almost $2,500 or 231,000 gallons.
“As you look at the amount of gallons they use, 230,000 plus gallons, that’s an extraordinary amount of gallons to use in a one-month time period,” Borchardt said.
Borchardt, who has been with public works for four years, says he’s never seen bills this high. To put it in perspective, that $2,500 water bill is more than 231,000 gallons, enough to fill the Terrace Park swimming pool almost one and a half times.
Really? Your grass is that important? Wow, get a life!
