Letter: Changes in calculating water bills

The water rate increase just OK’d by the city is misleading at best. Up to about 15 years ago, the base fee was for up to 10,000 gallons per month, then you paid extra for each 1,000 gallons of use. Then it changed to 5,000 gallons per month base.

Now it is to go to 2,000 gallons per month, then extra charges for water and sewer. Get ready for a 50 percent increase.
