Water Rate Hearing
Starts: Wednesday, Dec 3
Ends: Wednesday, Dec 3 - 8:30 pm
Location: Room 209 Newton City Hall, 1000 Commonwealth Ave, Newton MA
Description: On Wednesday, December 3, at 7:00 pm there will be a public hearing on the proposed rate changes for Water, Sewer and Stormwater, as well as public comment about the installation of second meters for outdoor water use. Presently, the proposal calls for an increase in residential stormwater fees to cover much needed infrastructure repair. In the case of the proposal to allow second meters, the rate for outdoor water would be higher than the indoor rate (ostensibly to encourage water conservation). However, everyone but the smallest users would see an increase in their indoor water/sewer bills to offset the change. Please come to City Hall and let the Alderman know how you feel. Go to http://www.newtonma.gov/gov/aldermen/committees/facilities/2014.asp for further information on the proposals. Of the reports on line, October 1 was the original powerpoint presentation, and there was another discussion on November 18.
