Ouch, that hurt!

I just received a shiny "Water Quality Report" notice from the City of Deerfield Beach, printed in full color on 11x17 glossy paper. According to a quick Google price check it cost well over $1,500 to print and who knows how much to mail to every house. This is a slap in the face to everyone the city laid off and everyone who is now going to have to pay a utility tax because the city needs the money. 

This could be printed on copy paper and included in the water bill. I don’t need to see the smiling faces of our commissioners and a sunset over Deerfield Beach in full color when reading about the fecal coliform contamination of our water supply.

  1. It may be required by state law. If not I think this practice would have gone the way of the dodo years ago.
