Do people rent out kitchens?
Or an apartment with just a kitchen?


Also are there basketball courts around that have games at night? Going to try LA fitness wondering if there are any other options.

NJ American Water is a monopoly; they own the rights to all water service in their service area. No one can pick up and go to another water supplier.

American Water Works, the parent company of NJ American water, is a for profit company mostly held by institutional investors such as BlackRock (it was spun off of a German company with an IPO in 2008). They are amazing at maximizing shareholder value- since 2008 their stock has had a return of more than triple the S&P 500 and more than twice the return of comparable water companies. The name of the water utilities game is return on investment on infrastructure. In plain english you find ways to put money into infrastructure- you can replace “aging pipes” “invest in future capacity” etc. Then you go to the BPU or whichever agency is in charge of rate increases in your market and justify rate increases because of the money you invested in infrastructure. You now have a great return year over year on the capital you invested. You can use the new revenue to “invest in additional infrastructure”. Rinse and repeat. American water is very good at their game. The BPU rarely rejects a rate hike request; they will sometimes lower an unconscionable rate hike request and then approve it, which can all be part of the strategy.

There is no easy solution to deal with the unending rate increases. Many Municipalities that privatized their water systems and sold them to American Water saw rates go through the roof in a short time, prompting efforts to take back the water supply under eminent domain laws. Felton, CA successfully fought to take their water system back from American Water after their rates tripled over a decade. Several other eminent domain fights have been waged across the country in places that have seen similar unending rate hikes by American Water subsidiaries. Can Lakewood do the same? It is a long and costly legal process, and you can be sure that American Water, which is headquartered in NJ, has extensive political ties and lobbying efforts in NJ that would only add to the difficulty.

The MUA has no shareholder profit to maximize, so rates are going to be far lower in their service area. Across the country it is not uncommon to find rates for American Water customers as much as double or triple the rates that municipal customers a short distance away are paying. So expect more of the same going forward. If you want to hedge against future price increases, you may want to consider buying shares of American Water Works (AWK), though you may want to wait for a more attractive price point, since the stock is near its 52 week high at the moment. Good luck.

Shanik stopped accepting UHC? I thought he was just recommending people switch away and that the recommendation applies even for those who are not his patients.
