New York City to Raise Price of Water



New York City is proposing to raise the price of water by more than 5.5 percent.

The Bloomberg Administration defends the raise by saying it is the lowest hike in eight years.

Others note that the water rate has increased every single year since Bloomberg has been in office (including four double-digit boosts beginning in 2008).

The average annual water bill for single-family homeowner is expected go from approximately $939 to $991 a year.  Please let us know how you feel about this proposal.
