I agree, the trash is $15. on mo. But the water and sewer is what is making a big difference. Go to the council meeting tomorrow night 01-04-11, and good luck to change anything. happy all the employee's got $100.00 for Christmas on the town.

I bet thjey still have not done anything about the sewer tanks where your sewer goes--is it still in bad shape. Maybe they need that money to pay the city employees with and a pay raise to keep up with inflation.

If the sewer system is fine, why is DEQ fining the city? Something definitely needs to happen in our town. Like maybe an outside audit?

how to stop them---the answer is vote them out of office. The citizens of Fot Towson has the power to undo what has been done. Vote them out of office is you do not like what the officials have done in your fair city. Does Ft. Towson still get their water from the old spring house.

Hell folks just ask for the audit done last year and find out where the money is going. Or ask for the last several months of the council meetings and it should contain the money spent on apaying the bills. It should all the business should be in those records of the minutes. that should tell you where and whom is getting the money and the bills being paid. You should be able to get those records under the open records law. There is also a the checks used to pay the bills which is a record within itself.Visit city hall and get a copy of the records. Might be interestingwhat you may find.

Those records may either enrage you or set your mind at ease.

I was under the understanding that raising the price of water was to be used to repair the sewer tanks. or did that idea change after the price of water was raised.

Pappy they say it is because of fines from DEQ. They flip out when you mention getting a town police officer. I dont understand what the big deal is. a cop could wriite speeding tickets all day long on hwy 70. Folks speeding thru here need to be

The reason the fort towson water bill is high is because they did not follow the EPA law and keep their sewer lagoon up to standards. that is what I understand. that is suppose to be what the water bills are suppose to pay for. I was talking to a person who lives in Fort Towson the other day and he said he could barley afford to pay the bill. Understand if you flush that commode to many times it will flush away you next meal before it is paid for.What are they doing with the water/sewer money? At one time it was possible to get federal and state grants to do work on water and sewer projects--that is till the T party Baggers came along and said no. Sounds like your state and Fedeal elected representatives are letting their voters down. You need to elect someone that will stand up and support your needs in govermen.
