No one looks out for customers
To the editor:
I live on Eldersville Road in Follansbee, where a few years ago sewers were installed.
My sewer bills have gone up ever since — I also paid a security deposit of $95.
I now pay $43.60 per month, and have no water and no trash pickup.
A recent article in the Herald-Star stated that the Brooke County Public Service District wants an increase of 18.9 percent — that would make my bill $51.84, and again, no water or trash pickup.
Who gets an 18.9 percent raise? Whether you work or are retired, you have a fixed income.
Medicare premiums will rise, and we will get a 2 percent increase in Social Security, so you will not see and extra dime.
Is anyone looking out for the customers? Give us a break.
