Residents do you know that every two months a charge of $4.50 is on your water bill. That is $27.00 a year not too much right? Multiply that $27.00 a year by aprox 30,000 homes in Dearborn Heights and what do your get? $810,000.00 to the City of Dearborn Heights Water Department. What is this service charge for? Council members that I’ve asked over the years tell me “well how do you think we pay to clean the sewers in the City? Interesting thing is if you are servicing the sewers and they are. I’ve seen the very detailed reports from the company that cleans the sewers in the City. Job getting done bill gets paid so I ask those on the council if the $810,000.00 accumulated from this service fee is going to maintain and service our sewers why is there still such a copious amount left in the water fund? Strange that our city officials wouldn’t see fit to maybe cut that amount from our water bills. After all the water fund is very healthy and there is more than enough to cover the expenses for the department and cleaning and maintaining the sewers. Strange that there would be so much money left in the water fund after expenses…why is that? Can anyone on the council answer that question?
