To the citizens of Whitefish; putting aside the remaining and unanswered questions about how the city let itself get into a position of having to limit water use citywide when no other town in the valley is having to do this.
I believe that we all should do our part in conserving and reducing our water consumption. But be on guard!
There is another issue, recently the City of Whitefish adopted the water conservation ordinance. Residence of Whitefish please be aware of the probable impact on you as a rate payer.
When the citizens conserve water and reduce their water and sewer usage, the water and sewer companies/city, receives less revenue from the year before which means that the politicians and city officials will agree to a rate increase to make up for the reduction in revenue due to our sacrifice of water usage.
Please let your politicians and city officials know that you will not stand for a rate increase due to your water conservation.
Also, tell them like my father use to tell me, “think further than the end of your nose when planning something.”
