Jackson mississippi municiple water utilities is charging its citizens $50 for late payments. I do mean 1 day late.

They bill bi monthly at a rate of $40 for water and $20 for sewer services.

That's $60 per month.

Why is their late fee more than 90 percent of their monthly charge for service? This isn't a fee. Its another persons bill.

I feel deeply for our seniors on fixed income and with 1 payday a month for life from social security. It is sad to see the city of jackson taking from its citizens. I trust someone is getting whealthy from this scam.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

How to be heard on water

AUTHOR: Anon. - (United States of America)

I live in Jackson, Mississippi in a approx. 1200 sq. ft. house with two people, a medium front lawn, a large back yard, two bath rooms, dishwasher, and washer.  My bill runs on average right at $82 every two months.  It includes water, sewer, and trash pick-up for two months.  The trash is at $40.  The water is pro-rated on how much you use and we usually do not go over the minimum billing amount for the period, so it is close to $30 and the sewer is close to $10.

Now, paying $30 for a whole two months of water for two people comes to only 25 cents a day.  If you only had one person, that would be 50 cents a day.  If you live in a house and you are paying a lot more, then I would call the utilities department and have your meter checked to see if it is working properly.  If you live in an apartment, usually your water, sewer, and trash are included in your total monthly rent.  If not, you need to see the bill or call your landlord or landlady.  Many times in Jackson, the landlords have illegally hooked up the water and sewer to Jackson around the meter and collect the rents and supposed utility payments, but do not remit them to Jackson.  When Jackson finds out, they will shut the water off and eventually imprison the landlord and/or sue for back payments.
