Nevada City should look at water pricing

If Nevada City wants its residents to conserve water, it ought to take a look at its water-pricing policy. Although there are water meters at every house, I’ve never seen anyone reading them, and I’ve never been charged extra for going over the monthly minimum, which must be quite high. For $52 a month, it seems that one can use as much water as one wants. There is no financial incentive to conserve.
