City Council to vote on water bill relief

It's the number one complaint that comes into Baltimore City Hall.

My water bill is too high, and I don't think it's right.

The Water Accountability and Equity Act won't fix all of the previous mistakes that the city has made.

These enormous and incorrect bills are causing some people to lose their homes.

The city has been billing Friendship Baptist church for around 700 gallons of water a day for years.

For the people who are staring down thousands of dollars in backed up bills, a team of about 20 people separate from the DPW whose only job from 9 to 5 is to help people with water bill related problems. The bill has passed first reading, and that means it will soon be assigned to the full council and would become law after a third reading.
