Proposed New Monthly Charge For Water Meters
Original post made by Joe Baldwin.., Downtown North, on May 10, 2007
As President of the Homeowners' Association of Waverley Park Condominiums, I know this would add $232.44/year to our costs.
As Treasurer of All Saints Episcopal Church in downtown Palo Alto,
I can report that our existing utility bill is the second biggest expense we have, approaching $35,000/year. The meter tax would add another $3,590.04 to that figure, over $3,100 of it for a dormant 6" meter through which no drop of water has ever flowed. The City required it be installed in 1995 when we built our then new parish hall.
I urge everyone to read the April 23 letter from the city detailing this proposal. Call them at 650-329-2161 to determine the cost to you. Then write to Council to protest because "If written protests are filed by a majority of the affected customers, the applicable proposed rate increases will not be imposed."
