READER POLL: How much does the hike hurt?

June 7, 2012

Newton City Council has not yet adopted its budget due to disagreement on a proposed electric rate hike of about 6 percent for the 2012-13 fiscal year.

Such a hike would increase the average Newton customer’s monthly bill by $7.43, or $89.16 a year. The average Newton power customer’s bill would climb to $123.46 per month.

How does such an increase affect you? Does it break the bank, hurt just a little or not at all?
