No more free water for Bossier City subdivisions (LA)

The City of Bossier City will no longer subsidize water for certain residential neighborhoods’ landscaping needs, a practice it says has caused a “significant loss” to the general fund.  The Bossier City Council on Tuesday agreed to revoke a 1993 resolution that provided for assisting with the beautification of street cul-de-sacs in new or expanding residential subdivisions.  “We looked at the records on file from the billing department over the last three years, and on average it (cost the city) about $42,000 a year,” said Ben Rauschenbach of Manchac Consulting Group, which has a public-private partnership with Bossier City to manage its water and sewer utilities. “That was based on meters that were actually being accounted for.
