More on "Did I tell you so ?"

This time it's Pembroke Pines.

Did I already write on new ways our local governments find to hit us back after we got a small reprieve in property taxes?

Well, it's happening. Every day.

Read 02/19/08 in the Sun Sentinel:

Pembroke Pines: Utility rates to rise 25%

Utility rates in the city will jump by 25.36 percent beginning Oct. 1.

The rate hike, which will generate $2.5 million for the 2008-9 fiscal year, will fund utility projects. The increase received final approval from the commission Wednesday.

Homeowners who use 3,000 gallons of water each month would pay $24.44 per month, up from $19.50. Homeowners who use 6,000 gallons per month would pay $49.49, up from $39.48.
