Dislikes new water billing

Remember a few months back when LVMWD announced, among other things, a new billing procedure? At the risk of saying I told you so, I wrote then it would most certainly presage a new level of shenanigans, which it has. The monthly cycle seems less than the bi-monthly charge as it should be, but it adds up to greater charges […]
