Legal Question

Asked on: 8/16/11, 12:16 pm

This is regarding municpal law. I recieved my utilities bill for water, sewer and garbage. The village where I live charges 65% of my water bill to figure out the sewer bill. About a year ago the village implemented a capital improvement fee for a well they are building. When I questioned the city administrator about the bill she stated the combine the water usage portion with the capital improvement fee. They take 65% of that total now to figure sewer. I would like to know the legalities of this. To me this is wrong. I am not questioning the improvement fee however they are also getting 65% of the fee as well. What are your thoughts?
