Sewerage and water is overpriced
Both Ryde and Marrickville Councils' sewerage service is under $146 but at my home in Umina Beach it is $336.21.
A recent ABC radio program highlighted the council's illegal hiking of water rates to get them set at a higher level and the way they managed that approval was by adding items other than water related such as recreational and so on.
I have recently shared my bill with friends in seven different council zones from the North Shore to the Inner West, all well to do and the highest cost per kilolitre is $2.
Central Coast water is, at minimum, 15 per cent higher than middle class areas of Sydney.
A bill of $796 for a household of two people who live in Sydney three days per week is not right.
