From what I remember... 1/3 of our water bills were "put onto our real estate taxes". Is this not true anymore?
In the beginning "some" water and no sewer I believe. This was way back under Cressman. When some water and sewer enterprise funds showed up way back paying for the Dog Catcher I totally lost track as to which shell the peanut was under. If you look at the budget today you will see water/sewer enterprise funds sprinkled through it.
It's easier for me to simply look at what I send the Town directly in funds. The real estate tax and the water/sewer bills total in the neighborhood of $7000 per year.
Plus excise taxes as well go directly to the town.
I believe that I'm more in the middle of the pack.
