Just in case you’re wondering why your household budget is getting tighter, the following might explain:
- Sewerage charges have risen by 66% and discounts for payment on-time have been removed.
- Water charges have increased by 125% (assuming usage of 772 kl pa). If in response you reduce your water usage by -68% to 250 kl pa, charges will still rise by 45%. Discounts for payment on-time have also been removed.
You have to wonder whether King Les really understands numbers like these.
