Dear Mayor,

What were you thinking raising the water rates 36%? Have you ever heard of getting a grant? Yes, it's possible to get a grant for these things and save us the residents tons of money. I understand equipment needs to be upgraded from time to time but you have just screwed the residents of Rockcastle County. Thanks for the extra tax.
well

What I'd like to know is why the water here smells like moss and takes like dirt? I'd gladly pay up if it meant having water we could drink without gagging.

of course we are going to whine we cant even drink this nasty water , we have to spend our hard earned money on bottled water and now have to pay more for nasty water , they ought to drop the rates instead of raising them , whoever raised them probaly makes enough money it wont affect them doesnt have anything to do with not wanting to pay for anything ignorant

I bet I pay more in taxes than you do. I pay my fair amount, I just don't want to pay more than I should. My water bill will go up more than $4 a month. I just don't agree with what was done... and I would think most residents won't agree either after that first bill comes in.

I agree with thumbs down y raise water taxes I know 4 dollars is not a lot of money but for all us working people that is forced to drive anywhere between 15 min to 1 hour just to get to a job that 4 dollars is a gallon of gas to support our familys and don't need to be waisted on stuff us tax payers will never see this town needs jobs the worst I've ever seen and I bet non of that money nor non of the rest of the tax maney we pay weekly on city taxes will go to better this town either or give any one here any hope for a better life

I would not mind paying for a water increase. We currently spend $30+ every month for bottled water. If water that we can drink, and does not have an odor can be provided I will pay the increase and not complain about doing so.

If those things can not be provided then DO NOT raise my water rate.

In all seriousness. What can we do about the water? Anyway we could organize something? I've been buying bottled for years now. For a long time we were given excuses but now everyone just fusses bout it and uses/buys anyway. HOW do we fix this? I'm definitely in if someone knows how. And I know at least 50 ppl myself who'd join in too. Let's do this!

We can start by banning gas motors on Lake Linville. That lake is our drinking water, not a big tourist attraction. It gets too churned up on weekends.

Second, I bet Buzz could decide to use the Recreation and Wellness money he's dying to spend on Water Wellness instead of a country club.

Wouldn't healthy water promote wellness?

Call uncle Hal Rogers and see if he will spend some of his grant money in this county.Seen in the Lexington paper last week where he had one half mile of road to his home worked on with tax payers money for 7.2 million dollars. He will be here soon with 18,000 dollars and a tee shirt and ask for volunteers to pick up garbage. This will be head lines with his picture in the local paper. maybe if we had someone that would kiss his ring he would get a grant to clean the lake which the last mayor tried to get and it was put on the back burner.Still people like this are elected to represent us and say we are conservative.

Everyone should demand that all that "recreational and wellness" money be put into a decent water treatment plant.

And someone who can run it.

They've got filters now that can make drinking water out of raw sewage.

Buzz is too cheap to spend "his" money on it.

And don't give me this, "The city owns the lake crap"

The city is in the county.
