If you live in Elmhurst and opened your utility bill recently, you probably saw this notice in the envelope that calls out the tax increases you're about to be hit with. They call it a 'Utility Bill Rate Increase', but let's all call it what it is: Government reaching into your pocket and taking more of your money for no new services. This increase is a 12.6% increase for this year, but if you read closely, they say that there are EVEN MORE tax increases coming in the next few years. They say, they *might* not be all the way up to 12.6%, but you can bet they'll be near 10% next year and the year after and the year after. Don't even get me started with the sewer costs. How does the City figure your sewer bill? Welp, they just take the consumption amount of water and charge you that rate for sewer fees. Even if it all doesn't go down the drain. Water your grass or garden? That water isn't going in the sewer is it? Nope. Doesn't matter.
