SUPERBOWL TO SUBMETERS

Steve:

Well, that was a fun Superbowl. ..not! Yes, Jacoby Jones’ 109 kickoff return was exciting. Yes, the 49ers almost-comeback was wild. But a game without a Florida team is a day without sunshine.

Jillian:

Come on Steve. That was a great game! I loved watching it.

Steve:

Call me a sore loser but I’m still not over the fact that the Fins, Bucs and Jags all had terrible seasons and didn’t even make the playoffs.

Tom:

Wait a second! Isn’t this blog supposed to be about how why multihousing properties should use submeters and bill water costs through CWE?

Steve:

Would you like me to get to the point faster?

Tom:

We’re not getting any younger.

Steve:

Well then….Floridians can take comfort in the fact that we are national leaders in at least one respect.

Jillian:

Yes?

Steve:

According to a USA Today article on spiraling water/sewer rates, over the last 12 years, Tampa has been a national leader – an increase of 117% in water and sewer rates. Not far behind is Jacksonville at a 71% hike in water costs. Miami comes in at a respectable 37% The Orlando area doesn’t rate so high – only 16% – but they don’t have an NFL team so let’s not pick on them.

Jillian:

Steve, first you bum us out talking about Florida’s woeful NFL season. And now you think we’ll feel better because Florida’s water and sewer rates are going through the roof?

Steve:

I just wanted to say that there is a silver lining for multifamily owners and property managers.

Tom:

Oh no, he’s not going to say…..

Steve:

CWE is here to help you recover those increasing water and sewer costs. We know that for utility billing to function properly, only the best in customer service will do. That’s why your property is assigned one customer service rep that knows everything about your property – when you have questions, you won’t get transferred to different departments.

Oh, and don’t sweat it. The 49ers and Ravens might have played in the Superbowl but Baltimore’s water and sewer rates are up 140% and San Francisco at 211% is second only to Atlanta’s 233% water rate growth.
