I’ve read the articles regarding Brooke Utilities, Mr. Hardcastle and the meetings in Mesa del. Here is my take on it — money, money, money.
We received a letter stating that during the summer months we would be charged for water hauling “... approximately $16 additional monthly costs per household ....”
This past month, I used 328 gallons less than the previous month, and instead of the $32 dollars I paid previously, I am billed $82-plus. I was charged in excess of $56 for water hauling. At 400 residents, $56 for one month comes to $22,400. I want to see the hauler’s billings, but Brooke refuses. Incredible. This is the best of the worst — never had to deal with such unfairness in my life.
