  • Not to overly defend the city, but the water-utility has $90,000,000.00 in unpaid bills.  Roughly half of all residential users have never paid a water bill.  The rates may be bogus, and the idea of charging for water may be bogus, but that still leaves the half that HAVE paid their bills paying the way for everyone.  Somehow, that just ain’t right.  Even if it is the new model for Amerika.

    • Dude where do you not have to pay for water? You said the rates may be bogus, and the idea of charging for water may be bogus  The only time I didn’t have to pay for water was in rentals where the landlord paid for it.  Are you telling me that in some cities/counties water is free?
