To the editor:
Wake up, Steubenville. Here we go again. It seems like the Steubenville Water Department is the only department in our city bringing in any money because when one increase in rates is done, they find another way to raise the water rates.
What I would like to know is why doesn't the city go after the delinquent water customers? That's too easy. Also, what happened to the money that all the other rate increases have brought in? I understand where some of the money has gone; however, the city needs to be held accountable to where all of the money has gone.
It really upsets me because any time Steubenville needs money, it comes up with an increase in water which it knows it has a grip on since we need this utility.
So, I guess they will push this rate increase through like they have in the past.
Unfortunately, you know as well as I do, this won't be the last time we see our water rates go up.
Those of us who pay our bills will get hit again and again.
