Hey Channel 69 News Do you ever read what is posted on your website ?????--- I think it down right disgraceful that these kind of personal comments are allowed to be posted on your website ---- and I am willing to bet that 3/4 of these comments are not at all truthful. It is a shame that this is what our society has come down to.

How come this blog or Web Site does not show the people in Birdsboro that are losing their homes because they cannot pay their water bill. If they don't pay their water bill the authorities say it means the homeowners have to move out of their house. This was shown on TV a few days ago where one family had to come up with $4,000 to pay a water bill. Why is this information censured and not shown here?

It appears to be only 4 comments on this water issue. No one seems to care that local governments can, at will, increase the voters water bill or other utility with disregard for what the average voter can afford. The voter is not a non for profit company, they have other bills to pay. Everything goes up but what voters make. The TV show showed people borrow from family to pay the water bill. What happens when the voters' money runs out? Where will they go. My problem is I only speak English and Profanity, am broke, and have no place to go (or hide from anything). I am stuck here in the good old USA. What laws protect the voter?

I think this would be considered the main thread for this story.
