Boise has a lot of hidden fees, and internet is more expensive than any other place I have lived. The city requires a back flow test on sprinkler systems, relatively inexpensive but when you add all the other hidden fees it adds up.
Sewer and trash are billed together at a rate of approximately $40 per month.
Internet without tv costs me over $90 per month.
Average gas bill is $50 per month
Average electric bill is $80 per month.
Suez water is around $50 per month.
$90 annually to register my car.
$75 a month for car insurance
