The DISCOUNT SYSTEM lias been adopted for the government of
the City Water Department, effective October 1st,-1912.
In substance, all flat rates are raised 50c per consumer and
meter rates are raised 11 per cent., providing that any flat rate
bill paid within 15 days from the first day of January, April,
July and October, for the quarter beginning on such day,' shall re
ceive a cash discount of 50c, and that any meterage bill paid'
within 15 days from the first day of each month, for the water
used during the previous month, shall receive a cash discount of
10 per cent, of the meterage portion Of the bill.
In other words, if you pay within 15 days from date bill be
comes due, your discount brings the bill back down to the amount
you have paid heretofore.
The object of the measure is to put
payment of bills and to relieve the city
