Patch, RI: An Coventry condo association reported that their billing for water went up more than quadruple in comparison to their previous quarter payment.
"Instead of scrambling to make excuses that make no sense, it's time for the Kent County Water Authority to recognize that something has gone seriously wrong with their billing and take corrective action to address the problem," Sen. Leonidas Raptakis said. "This problem is only going to explode when they send the remaining two-thirds of their bills out and people see they are being wildly overcharged. I'm not going away, my legislative colleagues aren't going away and consumers being victimized by this agency are not going away. The KWCA needs to fix this mess and they need to do it now."
