City of Palo Alto Utility is a Monopolistic Scam
Original post made by Toady on Sep 6, 2011
I just called, and the CPAU won't let us stop garbage service "just because we have the other services?" This is absolutely ridiculous.
First we pay more for gas and electricity than everyone else using PG&E, and now we have to pay for services we aren't going to be using?
This is the problem with government-run services. Service sucks and it's expensive. They don't have to care about us as customers - we're just taxpayers herded like sheep to the slaughter.
I thought we in PA are smart - but we're apparently dumb as nails when it comes to accepting this kind of crap from our city.
