Sandra Ruiz-Morales posted on the Miami Springs Community Facebook Group Morales that her Miami-Dade water bill had jumped from $49 to over $60,0000.00! In the same thread, Yoli Martinez posted that her bill had jumped to over $31,000.00!
What the heck is going on? Is it time to switch to private wells? Not necessarily.
As you know, Miami Springs Water and Sewer was switched to Miami-Dade Water and Sewer years ago. As part of the switch, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer put Miami Springs residents on automated meters.
According to WSVN Channel 7, Miami Springs is part of a pilot program.
According to the WSVN report, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer was aware of the issue and claims that these were isolated incidents.
Of course, it’s obviously wrong when a bill goes from $49 to over $60,0000. But how do residents trust the water bill if say it went from $100 to $150? Should you pay it or dispute the bill?
In Miami Springs, we don’t see residents complaining about their FPL bills, but I here lots of complaints about the water bills. Clearly, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer is having problems in Miami Springs when resident bills are reaching up to $60,000. Call Miami-Dade Water and Sewer and have them review your bill if you see any sudden and unexpected increases at 305.665.7477. They are open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
