Water Bills Reduced—There was a considerable reduction in the water bills received by the consumers of Wappingers Falls, N. Y., for water rent and charges, due to the reduction in rates. Heretofore the minimum rate was $3 per quarter, but under the new schedule it is $1.50. The new rates are: First 500 cubic feet per quarter, $1.50; for all over 500 cubic feet per quarter the charge is 20 cents per 100 cubic feet. A charge of 25 cents per quarter for meter maintenance is made on each bill so that the minimum charge will be really $1.75.
