[Ed. Note: I was stopped recently by my neighbor across the street from my City of Yelm property when I was cutting the grass there. My neighbors have lived in their home for 25+ years and raised their children to adults there. They told me that in all of their years here, they have never seen anything like the city’s water rate increase this year. They added last year’s was bad enough – they watered only their back yard last year. This year, they can barely afford to water their house plants, and have to forget their yard. They live on fixed incomes and were sharing how the city told them they would always have water when they hooked up to the city’s water line.
They asked what they could do. I encouraged him to write to the city & they said he would.]
You, too, should write and let the city know how you feel!
