The recent <br />prolonged contamination of <br />some water supplied by <br />Mockingbird Water Com - <br />pany fo llowing the June 22 <br />storm and the break in the <br />dike which is maintained by <br />Bernei l Water Company h as <br />indicated to some councilmen <br />that the Town itself might <br />better provide this service. <br />Other services under con- <br />sideration are fir e protection <br />and trash collection. <br />Other water company com- <br />plaints include co ld water in <br />some areas that runs hot in <br />s ummer; in s ome instances <br />too hot for a comfortable <br />shower. Complain ts have a lso <br />been made about the poor <br />l andscapin g provided for un- <br />sigh t ly water tanks. The high <br />water rates in some sections <br />have also drawn protests. <br />1 <br />In addition to the two com- <br />panies above, principal water <br />suppli ers to Town residents <br />are the City of Phoenix; the <br />Paradise Valley Water Com- <br />pany, a s ub sidia r y of the huge <br />American Water Works Com- <br />pany; a nd the tiny Mummy <br />Mountain Water Company. <br />The Town h as a u t hority to <br />co ndemn a utility in the pub- <br />li c interest. Some communi- <br />ties in the Valley, notably <br />Mesa, have eliminated a ll <br />property taxes because of rev- <br />enue from utilities.
