Two meetings are being held to talk about the upcoming rate hike. If you live in Dekalb County, you might want to attend.


There will be two very important meetings you should attend to discuss the 67% increase in your water bills.

(1)  Community Discussion

Tuesday, November 23, 2010, 7:00pm

Mt. Welcome Baptist Church

581 Parker Avenue, Decatur, GA 30032

(Directions:  Parker Avenue is off Glenwood between Candler and 2nd Avenue, across the street from the golf course.  Commissioner Kathy Gannon and someone from watershed management will be there to discuss our water bills.

(2) Commissioners Vote (on the 67% increase in water bills)

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010, 8:30am

Maloof Auditorium

1300 Commerce St., Decatur, GA 30030

It is very important that as many people as possible attend these meetings to voice their opinions against this increase in your water bills.  Example, if you now pay an average water bill of $107, your bill will increase to approx. $178. If you now pay an average water bill of $57, your bill will increase to approx. $96.  If you pay $37, your bill will increase to approx. $62.

    Water will become the new commodity that we will be fighting over in the coming years, similiar to oil and other natural resources…We are beyond the point where you can dig your own water well and come off the grid to the local municipalities…We will see the same issue with electricity, those of us who are using solar energy for our homes… We will be required to pay a fee, to some sort of licensing authority, to have our own panels producing our electricity…The white man will find a way to make a buck out of everything, including the air you breath…Nothing is life is free, is fast becoming a true statement…

  2. Self Storage Dekalb says:

    This has nothing to do with “The White Man”, it has to do with the mismanagement of all municipalities, local, Statewide, and at the Federal Level. If you own a small business in Dekalb, you don’t get to make mistakes that cause you to lose money and simply raise rates 67% to your customers and have no consequences like this. You go under. This rate hike isn’t about anything but keeping up the idiotic benefits, pay raise, and pension plans of County employees.
