TELL US: Did Your Wall Township Water & Sewer Bill Rise?
Residents reporting "mortgage payment-sized" bills for the last quarter of 2012
Residents all over Wall Township have reported receiving huge Water & Sewer bills for the last quarter of 2012, many in line with what homeowners would normally expect in the summer months, when water use is at an apex.
Here's an example of the reader comments from Wednesday's story on the situation:
"I went in to the Township offices yesterday to complain about the exorbitant bill. There are only two of us in a small house, no sprinkler, no pool, no kids. At a base 6,000 gal/mo there should be no overages for us. Or, if there are, they should be minimal, not twice the standard amount of the bill. We'll see where this goes. But at this point I don't trust the meter-reading equipment."
-- James Goddard
"Our bill was almost triple what it normally is. We went to the township office to inquire about it and we were told they would send someone out to double check the meter. They of course made no mention that this was a township wide issue. We did not see a meter reader although they may have come while we were at work."
-- Holly Finberg
