I found the notice in Fridays P A Weekly on page 9.

Meeting is on "Eliminating residental customers discounts on water and storm drain discounts"

I'v never heard of these "Discounts". What are they? Strange, do only certain people get these now?

Nov 5 meeting ,7pm in city council chambers.

When the City increased rates in July they indicated that rates would go up again in January. They used to go up once a year in January, now they've figures out they can increase them twice a year!!!

Water is going way up because the Hetch Hetchy system is going to be rebuilt for many Billions (with a "B")!!!!

We've let our backyard die and we haven't put out heat on yet probably won't until it gets down into the low 40s.
