“I haven’t thought much about it; I haven’t received a new bill yet.”

Kathy Reed, Fredericktown

“I’ve lived here for six of the last seven years with three teen boys. We’ll do things like limit showers to 10 minutes. I like the people here, but I don’t understand (why we have to pay these rates.) They’re ridiculous.”

Vince DeMorato, Fredericktown

“It will take more out of it. That’s just simple math.”

Mayor Alan Kintner, Fredericktown

“The rates for everything else keep going up and up, it hurts everyone. I just moved here from Mount Vernon and the rates there are crazy.”

Jerry Grennell, Fredericktown.

“We’ll try to use less water, of course. We might water the lawn less this summer. We’ll play it by ear. One thing we want to do is replace our toilets with more water-efficient models.”

Amanda Strater, Fredericktown.
