Sewer , Water and 8% potential Tax Increase?

So I didn’t get to go to last night’s public meeting on the budget. Call me a hypocrite since I complain all the time about City Council here, but whatever. I could care less. Our city officials are going to do whatever the f*** they want, whether residents are there or not. The only true way to fight city hall is to elect competent leaders to run our city the proper way and not into the ground. Every Tuesday I have something that’s much more important to me and a heck of a lot more run, so I’d rather spend it doing that than dealing with the mess at City Hall. (My love for going to important City Hall meetings faltered during the iStar massacre of 2016 [link]).

Ok, So if you are looking for an update of what happened last night, News12 has a video on their website. Besides potential 7% tax increases, Erin Colton reports on Water and Sewer increase. Please note that the Eramo administration raised our Sewer and Water fees last year. Watch the video. Residents are NOT happy about what is happening.
