Water rates

Dear Editor:After reading the notice of the proposed water rate increase from the city of Downey and doing a little math, using the numbers and examples in the notice, you will find that the bi-monthly water rate for a single-family residence will increase incrementally to a total of 104% by July 1, 2015 and the bi-monthly water rate for a multi-family residence will increase incrementally to a total of 144%. I encourage all property owners or ratepayers to do their own math to see what their water bill will be after July 1, 2015. You may not like the results. -- Martin Susnir, Downey
