I'm all for modernizing the sewer and water system but that sewer bill is rough. I get a voicemails reminders all the time to pay it or that I've fallen behind. I can only imagine the burden on lower income people.
I would love to know the amount of unpaid sewer bills in City right now after the last big rate raise. I can assure it's a very big number. It can spiral out of control quickly for low income homeowners. I don't know what happens when your bill is so far behind you cannot pay it.
For those of you who think that I'm full of sh*t and I'm over stating how rough the monthly sewer bill is right now, well, then you're living in a bubble and don't know enough real people in this city.
Another thing, when the system is all fixed up do not expect to get a letter in the mail that says "thanks, the system is modernized and efficient and this is a notice that we are lowering your bill". That simply doesn't happen.
