Somerville Speakup Line: FY2020 Water and Sewer Rates Feels Like a Mafia Style Hit

Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,

So let me understand something about this city meeting. It’s about the water and sewer rates which ARE going up again. Why have this meeting. It’s utterly useless. We have no say or powers to stop it. No power to lower it. Oh ya by the way when was the last time it went down or stayed the same. NEVER! The MWRA is like a mafia fiefdom (you must pay the Vig or its 2 in the hat). Welcome to Somerville come on in for (our motto) a beer and a beat’n.

  1. We now pay to rent the water meter. That was slid in there.

    The city has block rate billing where the more that is used the more it costs per gallon. Look at the back of a water bill for the tier amounts.

    The cities want to increase funding for their spending. The recent property tax bill is up 10 percent this quarter. It was up 10 percent last quarter.
