Letter: Monthly sprinkler charge unfair, unwarranted

To the editor:

If you have an in-ground sprinkler system and you are serviced by Bargersville Utilities water district, you need to read this.

On June 25, I addressed the Bargersville Town Council to express my concern on their additional billing of $10 plus sales tax, per month, for residential single-meter customers that have an in-ground sprinkler system.

In my opinion, this is a very unfair and unwarranted monthly charge. The normal residential monthly meter charge is approximately $6.50 per month. The additional $10 plus sales tax meter charge per month to in-ground sprinkler customers cost Bargersville Utilities nothing. You pay for every drop of water you use, whether it goes in your sink or on your yard.
