Fulton County, Georgia Raises Water and Sewer Rates

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Around Atlanta GA RE License #296541


I received an interesting email this afternoon from Robert L. "Robb" Pitts, Commissioner, District 2-At Large, Fulton County Board of Commissioners:

Dear Fulton County residents and business owners:

You have been asked to conserve water, which you have done.  Regrettably, this decrease in water usage also caused a reduction in Fulton County's revenue. Based on projected water sales, Fulton County will be unable to produce the net revenues needed to cover the required 2008 bond debt service.  As a result, the county has adjusted water and sewer rates by 15%.

Ironically, though we have followed strict water restrictions successfully (which are even stricter than the state's restrictions) we are now being penalized in the form of a rise in water rates. 

Click here for more information regarding the amended rates.

If you live in Fulton County and wish to contact Robert L. "Robb" Pitts, Commissioner, District 2-At Large, for additional information or with feedback, he can be reached at:
Fulton County Board of Commissioners
141 Pryor St. Suite 10043

Its really getting rediculous in Fulton County. I just can't believe how the past mayor and the current mayor have allowed this financial crisis. This rate increase is going to hurt so many people who can hardly pay their water bill as it is. Then for all those poor Fulton County employees who lost their job because of someone else's mismanagement of money is just sad.
