Buckeye homeowners take water bill fight to city hall [Highlights]

Three dozen irate Buckeye homeowners packed the Buckeye city council chambers Tuesday night to voice frustration over sky-high water bills.

Chad Taylor has a face-to-face meeting with Mayor Jackie Meck on Wednesday, but he didn’t want to waste an opportunity to voice his concern.

“We are setting up appointments with everybody that wants us to come out,” Nigh said. “The city determined there is historically a $35 charge when we go out to do above and beyond work for the customers. We’re waiving that right now.”

Meanwhile, the city is offering free service to figure out what’s wrong.
The city’s water and sewer director Dave Nigh spoke just before the meeting.

“We want that money back,” said homeowner Heather Wilson. “It’s not their money. They’re stealing it from us.”

Mayor Meck says he hears the problems loud and clear and will begin coming up with a plan to find the root of these billing issues.

These people say they aren’t here for $35. Some paid upwards of $800 last month on water alone.

“53 gallons of water per hour for the whole last month,” said Jeff Hancock. He claims his water bill went up after turning off his irrigation system.
