Water bill to increase

Filed under: Uncategorized — ralphbuttigieg @ 12:24 am
Sydney Water will be substantially increasing water rates , the reason – public servant wage bills:

SYDNEY households are set to pay over $60 more for drinking water – increasing a typical customer’s bill to almost $1000 a year.

The price increases will help cover the cost of long-service leave for government staffers and building the Kurnell desalination plant.

The rises come despite water supplies approaching record levels and Sydney Water making over $1.5 million in penalties from people breaching water restrictions.

How about some competition? Or maybe straight out privatization?
