You're brilliant. The utility tax is for the transmission of water, gas, and electric; not for the product itself.

A tax is for the utilities to have money to run and purchase things. It's the same as that restaurant tax Lebanon has. They use that to pay employees and to bring in events and purchase items for the so call tourism. I'm not saying the generator is not a good idea, but to say the people are not paying for it is totally false.

The tax is for the transmission of the utilities, it DOES NOT go to the utility companies. Those are private companies whose ownership is public information.

I think this is a good thing. Water supply will not be interupted in event of a power outage. Is good management.

The city does own the water company. However, it is a separately run entity.
