See part 1 here: https://blnnews.com/2019/12/01/tari-and-water-part-1/
Below are the regular water etc bills for the house Tari lives in.
I didn’t receive the June 2019 bill in the FOIA, since the July bill shows a previous unpaid balance it wasn’t paid by the due date.
This time penalties are added, June was the same bill not paid by the Due Date in Part 1. It was due June 26th which was pre-flood.
The bill below covers when the water leak occurred, it shows close to 1500 gallons more than the July bill. 1500 gallons is equivalent to a 10′ x 10′ pool and 2 feet deep. The bill was $30 higher because of the leak, the additional charges applied to the water usage, storm water, sewer, and water reclamation.
Since I don’t have a water meter . . .
Isn’t the City replacing all of them to a version that is read remotely? Isn’t it unusual that water usage if either 748 gallons or 2244 gallons before and after the flood?
If you don’t live in Bloomington you have probably never seen a complete bill:
Tons of charges I completely avoid living in the middle of nowhere!
Previous Protection/Insurance charges were $1.05, Coverage must have been increased.
