Wa­ter Works bill

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

Has any­one else no­ticed the in­crease in their last bill from the Tren­ton Wa­ter Works? The Wa­ter Ready charge went up 70%! There are two charges on your bill. One is vari­able based on us­age and the other is fixed, an over­head charge. The lat­ter went from$46 to $79! A $130 an­nual in­crease! That’s not a one shot charge ei­ther, that’s here to stay. The good news is that num­ber hasn’t in­creased since 2009. But then again, that equates to a 5% in­crease ev­ery year since then. Let’s hope that num­ber stays con­stant for a while and we start get­ting clean wa­ter or keep get­ting clean­wa­ter! I hope it’s worth it! We’ll see! — Hamil­ton Res­i­dent Not a whole lot we can do about the wa­ter rates. We’ve had sev­eral sto­ries about up­grades and up­dates. I’m hop­ing they are on the right path.
