    This is getting outrageous for each time Aqua raises the water rates the village of Grant Park equalizes the sewer bill and now I am paying close to $100.00 a month for water and sewer. I do not know if your increase in wages has gone up 8.25 in the last 5 years, however neither my husband nor mine has. The water the electric and the gas has gone up in the last couple of years, I am up to 2 jobs a day my husband works two and we are both 60 years old. One of these days if the ICC does not start putting the clamps on we will no longer be able to pay our utilities. PLEASE STOP WE ARE HURTING>

    The price of the actual water is reasonable. The extra fees that are added on are excessive. Many in our neighborhood have complained. A recent article was published about adding Manteno, IL to the system. This action would reportedly raise our fees to help cover the cost of this work/service. In the article it was noted that the fire protection fee would be just under $3. Our fee is at present is already $13.45. This fact is disconcerting to me as a homeowner because all of our water system was paid for as a result of a Settlement from SHELL OIL. No investment from AQUA. A windfall of profit for AQUA and a neighborhood on new customers for future revenue. We also RENT our water meters for a fee of $29.78 per month. In 10 years I will have spent approximately $3573 to rent something I should be able to buy and own, a much more economical option for me. The fees attached to my water bill are in fact 53.3% of my total bill. In closing I would urge you to consider my negative feelings about such an action and its negative effect on my household expenses.

    Seek to deny approval of a rate increase to fund expansion to Manteno.
