If Wavy TV 10 is really on the HRSD rate payers side, and is concerned about expenses; look at the new general managers expenses. Its amazing what you can learn.
Seeker, you sound like you are conspiracy theorist...either that or you like throwing rocks at bee hives to see what happens. In either case, you don't have any clue what you are doing or talking about. Kinda hard looking from the outside in, eh?

and if HRSD got a 52 million dollar grant at the beggining of 2008 then why is the public paying for this new billing system?

First off Red, I am posting on here because I actually did get a very high bill. But using a little common sense after knowing full well that I didn't get a bill for about 7 months prior, I knew I had to pay the high amount because I didn't pay anything previous to that bill for that extended period of time.

As far as working for HRSD, I had no clue what HRSD did until this whole news story cropped up. But after doing due diligence (something you should do), I was able to see the good that HRSD does for this region. No 'quilty contious'(guilty concience) here just a need to tell what is right.

Lastly, you mentioned a $52 million dollar grant...again, please state something you actually have knowledge on. If you look on HRSD's website, you'll notice that there are huge projects that need to be completed to not only comply with regulatory agencies but also to help the environment. Having a construction background, I know that $52 million dollars is barely enough to fund a treatment plant upgrade let alone probabably the hundreds of infrastructure projects that need to be done to the region's piping system. But why do you care, right? You just flush the toilet and believe your crap goes to never never land or some other imaginary place where our you don't have to worry about it.

What exactly does HRSD do? Never heard of it. Is it some kind of state government program?

It breaks my heart to hear all the bad publicity that HRSD is getting now. Before the changes, HRSD was a proud company, took care of their customers. My opinion, more of the higher up should of and can still be punshished. More and more outsiders are coming in. Back then, it was the cities that wanted in HRSD. I always felt that they would destroy HRSD.. Why wasn't the new GM investigated????Look hard at who is working there now and look back when HRSD was in you thought highly of HRSD.. Think about it...You have the right to protest. Call your Commissioners and protest.....

It's a shame that a company like HRSD, who does tons of stuff to protect the enviroment, help the community, and promote possitive growth, is being thrust into negative publicity. Whatever happened or did not happen, HRSD and the people who work here, would never take advantage of their position. I believe it is all a common case of human error, not deceit.
You have your eyes wide shut, their employees travel more than a circus, they should have to be accountable to the public and have their books scrutinized.

Why am I getting a monthly bill for $200 a month, instead of the quarterly bill. Could somebody explain it to me.
