I want to thank all of you who took the time to respond. Thank you for the kind words, encouragement, sharing in my anger, and sharing your stories
with me of similar circumstances.
I was outraged at what I had shared in my OP with you. I am now more outraged after reading some of your stories of similar situations. It just makes
me more angry. Lonegurkha shared that the phone company was charging for not using long distance, and that a friend was charged for not using gas.
JibbyJedi has to pay "minimum usage charge" when not even using all the allowed water. LighAssassin in Aussie is going through the same with water.
gandamack is paying a meter fee for water that isn't being used.
WE, the people, have a situation far and widespread! It's coming to a town or company near you.
What really gets me is it's WATER! Water is a natural resource....yet we are PAYING for it! If we use it through our municipalities - we are paying
for it. If we don't use it through the municipalities - we will still pay for it. If the water you are hooked up to is filled with the damn chemicals
and you buy bottled water for drinking - you are still paying for it. Forget oil! Water is the business to get into.
I will update as I get more information. I am planning on heading to city hall tomorrow. I will let you all know how it goes. Thank you again for all
your input. A lot of you gave me more good questions I would like to get further information on.
