Reward lower water use

Maybe an idea for the seasonal water rates could be keeping the rates where they are, and for those who use less water reward them by having them pay less.

We are being taxed to death, our city councillors make decisions to continually spend our tax dollars whether it be on expensive art work or for their pay increases.

Water conservation is important, but many people have not received pay raises in a couple of years – yet they need to pay their taxes.  Less fees for less water usage but don’t raise the initial fee.
