The city is going to now receive a $1 million dollar fee per year from the sewage authority. Can someone explain to me how this won't result in yet another back door tax increase in the form of higher bills? Is the $14 million from the last bail out gone already?

There will not be any sewage system user rate increase because Cherepko and Shermenti proclaimed such. These two city officials have impeccable credentials and reputations and are trusted city officials by their own criterions.

The machine adores them and blindly advances their skewed political agenda. City vendors and employees contribute generosity to their cause and mission and are rewarded accordingly. Vendor money is then recycled back into their political campaigns.

This agenda is the propaganda party line that the machine leader advises them to exploit. The infamous and late despicable Nazi Dr. Gobbels said if you repeat a lie enough times the public will ultimately believe the lies. This worked for quite a few years in the Reich, but then reality of truth triumphed and Nazism defeated. Do not forget how Dr. Gobbels controlled the press and unions and his party.

That is the best explanation yet for the disappearing vehicles. Perhaps that is why MACM voted to increase the capacity of the sewage collection system.

The Daily News editorial column today was asking Mikey and Nicky the same question. Where is the $1 million coming from if there is no rate increase anticipated? The answer is simple – just lie to the public and blame the next rate increase on Act 537.

I think Mikey and Nicky got bad coaching from the senator and DUI solicitor on this one again. The Washington D. C lie machine does not spin well in the Port especially when the exorbitant sewage bill arrives in our mailboxes.

It is commendable that the Daily News exposed the inexperienced boy mayor and the puppet nepotistic MACM chairman. Both trained and hand picked by the senator. Did the senator teach them how to continue to lie and concurrently wipe egg of their faces?

Let us hear it Mikey and Nicky -- explain your voodoo math! You both got caught in one BOLD BIG LIE!

You are raising an excellent point. The MACM feces will collide with the whirling turbine blades and be propelled and dispersed throughout the suspect administrations.

These dispersed feces particles shall penetrate the powerful elected official’s veil of impunity or immunity. Those sprayed with this powerful antidote will immediately recognize that their abominable terror of abuse of discretion and authority is abruptly terminated by interested outside powerful forces.

This has all the characteristics and potential for the beginning of an end, and a strong omen to “Bring It (honest and transparency) Back.”

Here's how it will work. MACM will not "raise" sewage rates. What will happen is every customer will end up paying a ten, twenty or thirty dollar (or whatever the number will be)"surcharge" to pay the million dollar host fee. For what WAS the city's last asset (they've piled up so much debt on the authority) someone will take it over without paying a nickel. Probably ALCOSAN or that crew in Westmoreland. God help us.

I know you got it. The only future salvation will be to sell MACM for its total big debt at a bargin value.

The devious and covert plan by the machine is to sham the taxpayers and KEEP THE BREWSTER RECORD OF NEVER RAISING PROPERTY TAXES GOING. Mikey will use that for his next election.

It IS laughable, isn't it? That $1 million has to come from SOMEWHERE. They already raised rates to compensate for the costs of compliance with the gubment mandates as far as sewage....so clearly they do not (should not) have a fat bank account saved up.....so either rates will have to go up or they will have, as you said, a sur charge. They really do think we are f-in idiots.

Definately a "back door" tax.....we are all getting it up the back door with this "deal" for the city.

May be some of the $1 million should be held back by MACM to pay for the purchasing the old White Star Laundry building on Walnut Street by Chairman Nick.

The out of control MACM is like UPMC they want to own everything. How is the Wally and Joe building renovation project going?

When the other punished communities that pay for the $1 million host fight back with legal action, the mayor and Nick might want to walk this one back.

Why not a $1 million host fee for the MASD whose vehicles wear down our streets and require our snow and ice removal or treatement service and police/fire services?
