Water Meter Installation 2018 Update

After getting this water meter installed in 2014, I really wanted it to be a ripoff, like most other city services. But after four years of water bills, I can safely say that unless you're emptying Lake Michigan every time you shower, a metered account is a better deal. If you're on the fence, just do it.

    Water Meter Installation Update - 2018
    Four years after the installation of my water meter, the half-yearly charges are less than a quarter of what they were when I was being billed for non-metered water. It's a great deal, as long as you keep the bill paid on time, which, of course, you do with all your bills.

    I spent the month of February on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina and in Savanah GA. HH was boring - bunch of old folks from Ohio and Pensylvania who just play golf and eat. Savanah GA was much better - Black and White Southern Americans who agree with me about most everything important. Sure Savanah has some crime, shootings - but most every agrees with what is right and wrong. Children should be loved, taught decency and respect. Criminals should be identified and marginalized. The worst criminals should be strongly punished. What a difference between Chicago. Chicago Lib Dem pols suck on Crime - Rahm, Sheriff Dart, DA Fox and chief judge Tim Evans - these idiots have allowed our city to sink in to New York City early 90s murder and mayhem. Let's dox these Chicago Lib Dems.
