In the last few months the residents of this city have seen their garbage bill & their sales tax increase to try & keep this city up and running. Now they want a VERY LARGE increase in the sewer/water service??? What part of "tighten your belt" does the city not understand?
Bad management? You bet. The city might have thought of the problems we are having YEARS AGO! Maybe before the Board Walk, maybe before the remodel of City Hall, or the new water meters we didn't need. We can live without all of these things, but try live without flushing your toilet!
If the city wants to do away with the senior discount, then everyone should be required to pay the same amount for water & sewage. Why should a resident that uses less water than a hotel or laundromat, have to pay more for service??? If the residents can not afford this increase, neither can the businesses. That will mean more jobs lost, just what our area needs!
Poor management? You bet!
