The million dollar host fee is a made up way of collecting the monies lost by selling the authority the lines and billing. The City came up with a plan to collect 24 million dollars and keep it's sewage billing revenue. This don't not include the other misc. monies taken from the authority being the Mayor has placed council members and family members on the board to push this.

Hush, Hush sweet Charlotte!

You are an insider with keen insight and wisdom. You must quit exposing these nefarious acts, but the surrounding municipalities were not fooled. They could and should have their day in court on this one. I speculate that they have an excellent case.

Do you realize that if these municipalities should prevail and they should IMO, and the host fee is adjudicated as illegal, that this spins the City into an instant financial catastrophe?

The City would have to return the previous illegal amounts. To make up $1 million the city would have to layoff about 25 of their employees and pay their unemployment and benefits for a year.

The alternative is to raise property taxes by about 50% or mortgage the future by issuing significant general obligation bonds.

Let us hope for the sake of our beloved elected officials, mayor, solicitor and the City that the surrounding municipalities become benevolent good neighbors and quash pursuing their rightful legal remedy.

Mr. Porkster is NOT THERE as JB would say when the City needs him most. AG Kane and the PSP and his indictment have neutralized his influence over the Mayor Cherepko, City Council, MPD and MASD and isolated his resources.

And, Mayor Cherepko gave a gift of $25,000 to the MACM Chairman to retire. Or is this hush and MACM vote buying money for the mayor?

Even the loyal machine supporting news media in their editorial did not support Mayor Cherepko in justifying the $1 million illegal host fee.

This should embolden the surrounding communities to move aggressively forward with their class action legal remedy.

I was puzzled by a vague statement in the editorial that hinted that the forensic audit could not determined if the host fee impacted our sewage rate fees. This is hilarious.

How absurd, the MACM has only two primary sources of revenue, that is from the fees the uses pay and occasional government grants.

If there are no more government grants, which are usually purpose specific, then what other revenue source are available except USER RATE FEES?

Mr. Porkster and his deep pockets which have been sewn closed by the AG are not available to the City, MPD and MASD that he once owned with $$$$$$$.
