Get uncollected fees first
To the editor:
There is no doubt as to the need to renew our water distribution system.
The problem I have is that the collection of past due water fees was dropped like a hot potato. There is no way I would go along with the city manager’s line of thinking until this issue is resolved. I also think that if he thinks that he should have all the money he wants to work with, so would a lot of other people. He has been here a short time and is in our pockets. I find this to be asinine.
I realize it takes money to operate any system, but you can only go to the well so many times, then the people revolt. The people of this city have always been very supportive, but I think he is wrong in attempting to go this route. There are huge sums of money out there in uncollected fees – go after them first.
When you have that job done then see where we go from there, but not before.
