Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
In April I sent an email to the Manteca water department asking why they did not change the water bill consumption usage to gallons because as a customer I cannot tell how many gallons I actually use.
HCF (hundred cubic feet) usage means nothing to the average water user. The reply I got was that their IT people are working on changing the water bill to reflect gallons used but it will take “months” for them do so.
Seems strange that a conversion formula is so difficult!
Thank you for trying to get our city government personnel to do the right thing (Dennis Wyatt column, “Manteca needs user friendly water bills”) for Manteca residents.
