I maintain two homes, one in Moline, one in Georgia where I have been the last three months. I have used not one drop of Moline water during the current billing cycle from January 2 through April 1, 2013.

However, unlike other utilities, such as electricity and gas where there would likely be no charges for non usage, I am billed a base charge of $90.74. This is the minimum charge when you use no water during a billing period. I'm sure many other Moliners experience this charge as well.

I have voiced my complaints with the Water Department in the past but they defend this method. Are snow birds getting screwed here? I think so.

James Hedman,
Byron, Ga.
