Maybe they should also charge the water company, gas company, etc. for the areas occupied by their pipes.
Not to mention the government owns many utilities like the Springfield Water & Sewer Commission, Chicopee Electric Light Department, Westfield Gas & Electric, and Holyoke Gas & Electric.
I am starting to wonder if our tax dollars are subsidizing these utilities. And you have fewer rights with municipal utilities than you do with investor owned utilities such as billing and shut-off rights.
