Aqua Indiana: "Bend Over Aboite"

From The Journal Gazette:

Aqua Indiana customers will begin paying 50 percent more for their water and sewer utilities next month.

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approved the company’s 75 percent rate increase request last month. The higher rate will be phased in, with a 50 percent spike taking effect in October and the remainder of the increase in June.

Bill Etzler, vice president and regional manager of Aqua Indiana, said customers won’t see the new rate on their bills until November, and because of billing cycles, the full effect won’t be seen until December for most customers. According to the state, the full increases will mean an extra $19 a month for the average sewer customer and an extra $14 a month for typical water customers.

I think it's time for the city of Fort Wayne to take over water and sewage in Aboite as they did last year in northern Allen County.

As an Aboite resident, I am not happy about this, of course; but if it means that I do not need a water softener (true softened city water), then it may be worth it.

Stan -

You will still need your water softener, unless Fort Wayne takes over the lines. AI is increasing our rates with NO benefits to our service, AND they were already higher than Fort Wayne's rates BEFORE this increase.
