Dear Editor,

I contacted the sewer adviser at FKAA and asked about my new impending utility bill. How is the Sewage portion of my bill calculated? He answered Everything that goes through the water meter is billed as Sewage. I asked what about the 7000 gallons used to top off my pool-Sewage. What about the water I use to irrigate my fruit crops-Sewage. What about the water I use to water my grass-Sewage. How can this be?? Why is FKAA taxing me for something that they aren’t providing. Isn’t this ILLEGAL?? Is FKAA doing this on its own or are they just following directions as a Contractor from the SEWER SYSTEM OWNERS, the Monroe county government and particularly the Controlling members of BOCC?? Are you happy about the way YOUR government is systematically taking more and more of your money and for what. Why did the BOCC vote to give away 14.2 Million dollars of our Sewer Project Money to the State of Florida to repair the States falling down bridge?? Isn’t this Misappropriation of OUR tax moneys. Are you citizens of Monroe Country satisfied that Your Elected Commissioners are spending Your tax money the way You voted to have it spent?? Do you give a SH••?? This is Stealing plain and simple. Are you going to stand up and do something or bend over and “thank you sir may I have another”. It WILL get worse unless You do something to stop this.

  1. There is not a decent answer for you…if your one of the special people here in KW then you probably don’t pay anything, the rest of us chalk it up as living in paradise.
    All this under-the table but seen in public – may some day blow up in their face, the children are learning a good life lesson, I just hope they don’t have to ever leave KW.
    All these problems are generated by appointed persons from the Governor in Tallahassee so there is where you have to start…from the Governor to KW. Keep digging and it is a real majestic trip how Monroe Co. & KW operate…Just think KW brings in 15 million a year in taxes and has a budget of 166 million of year. The city has the sewer plant? Oh Yea…biggest landlord in KW -the city!
    I wish that I could buy land/houses in KW without liability/flesh in the game.

    Hope that helped a little – Keep trying only takes one to break the rut..

  2. It’s worse than you think, Doc.

    If you have a bad leak, eg a broken hose that in a day can run up a $1,000 water bill, it used to be that you would NOT have to pay for the non-existent sewer bill on this water. There was a once-a-year no-fault forgiveness of such a disaster. But when they folded the sewage into the water bill, that yearly forgiveness disappeared.

    It’s simply unfair, and they don’t bother justifying it. Ka ching, and screw the ratepayers.

  3. Surely you have the ability to purchase a sewer deduct meter like the rest of the country? All outdoor spigots are connected by this meter and the usage amount is deducted from your sewer usage.
