Water Works bill
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.
