Truthtelling a la APS

APS' million dollar Communications Department published a press release claiming to have saved tax dollars, link.

It's title; "APS Saves ... Taxpayer Dollars ..."

The gist of it; a project to install low flow toilets will not only save water but tax dollars as well.

"The project ... generated $338,250 in rebates and should save ... $25,323 annually."
What they didn't tell you; the project cost taxpayers $1,047,271.

Taxpayers won't even break even, much less save money,
for 28 years.

If one accepts the ancient proverb;
A half truth is a whole lie;
then the leadership of the APS has lied to taxpayers, again.
