I’m voting no because of rates

By From page A8 | February 07, 2013

Without a new water rate that simply charges me per gallon for all my usage, I’m voting “no” on Measure I. What is wrong with these people? Fair is fair, and these rate structures are arrant nonsense (as well as somewhat incomprehensible).¬†And the city is actually paying these people to think all this stuff up?!

“Consumption-based” and “fixed-rate” are used together … they are opposite terms. Reward me monthly for the last month’s conservation, and do not charge me for any infrastructure already in place.
