More Water and Sewer Savings for Seniors and Disabled People

Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s announcement that Boston Water and Sewer Commission will increase water service discounts for all senior citizens and disabled homeowners to 30 percent has been praised by many.

It was an important decision that adds new protection for low income elderly and persons with disabilities who certainly can use the money.

The Mayor and other organizations have been completely responsive to consumer concerns that water and service rates in Boston are too high for many of the elderly.

This is very good news for consumers struggling to make ends meet.
