Open letter to City Council and administration
Why are Marco Islanders not allowed separate meters for water used inside the house and outside the house?
Where I lived previously, this was the case. It is also the case in Miami-Dade County, but not on Marco Island. Why?
Why is my (future) sewer usage based upon the voluminous amounts of water that my landscape and pool use, but never enter the sewer?
Is this not blatant discrimination? How would my water usage compare to a hotel’s water usage or that of a condo when considering landscape usage percentages? I suspect that there is a very great disparity. For that matter, what if I am gone for five or six months and my only water usage is irrigation, yet I still pay for sewer services? Something is just plain wrong here.
I am openly asking our city leaders for an explanation. I am very interested. I hope that you are.
