Water Prices Rise, But Water Corp. Still Not Providing Basics


The Chairman of the State Control Committee said today (Monday)  that water corporations are not providing basic public services even though water prices have been pushed up more than 50% since they were established.

The State Control Committee discussed this morning (Monday) the issue of civil complaints against the water corporations, following the Ombudsman's report on the subject. 

Committee Chairman MK Amnon Cohen (Shas) brought up that the number of petitions that the State Comptoller receives does not reflect the reality of the situation, saying, "People get exasperated at the futility of submitting their complaints."
