So sad our city representivities don't work harder to keep the costs under control,for Mt Washington tax paying citizens.

What are they doing with all the money collected?

Where are our Council Members, only water rates increased by Lou Water. Why increase sewer for the same amount, that is a double increase?

So they have more tax dollars to pxss away, on things like their salary increases.

What ever happy to the $1,000,000 surplus? Just kidding, we all know. Campaign lie! One of many.

I so happy, why?
Because all Mt Washington's residences received a raise "again" this year.
Mayor and Council gave themselves raise "again" this year. City tax payers also received a raise "again" this year. Remember, your water and sewer rates increased so we could pay for their raises. Thanks so much for caring about us, Mayor and Council.

P.S. skip our early "Christmas present" next year!

I guess (bet) the Mayor and Council Members will spend the same amount of time opposing the expensive new law requiring different street signs as they have fighting water increases. NONE!

Funny, they have no problem making sure they receive yearly salary increases.

Reactive bunch they are, except when it comes to getting themselves more pay.

They need to take a long vacation, sit on the beach and pray for their salvation. Especially the 4th and 6th COMMANDMENTS.

Typical bible carriers....do as I say, not as I do!

Grab your cheeks, another increase is coming.
Mayor and Council Members gave themselves and all city employees an increase. I can understand the city employees receiving increases but the Mayor and Council Members. What a sorry way to screw the tax payers by hanging on the coat tail of hard working and deserving city works.

They have to pay for all of the above somehow, so water and sewer will be increasing.

I've lived here a few years but grew up here. My property tax and water bill go up astronomically every time I turn around. What is this city offer for increased taxes ? If you want to charge Louisville taxes then offer what Louisville offers....retail, nice parks etc. the park looks the same as it did 30 years ago.

They continue to lie....water rates going up 3.2%, right, add in the sewer tax of 3.2%. Tell the truth you bullshxt artists. Where's the $1,000,000.00 surplus, Joetta Bass Calhone and Berry Armstrong flaunty around during there campaigns????? Same crap different MAYOR.
Armstrong has been involved in everytax increase for the last 35+ years. Same for the "tax increas'er" Greg Gentry, along with Hockenbury and Troutman. Sorry bunch of money hungry, salary increasing fools. Doesnt say much for the family and friends who continuely vote these fools in, year after year.
Did all the members follow the leader???

What say there council members, 3.2% TAX increase on water bill or 6.4% Tax increase?

Maybe you folks should look at giving back that annual salary increase, that includes you Mayor Barry Armstrong. GREEDINESS! COVETOUSNESS! Show the TAX paying citizens you have concerns about adding more TAX burden on an already over TAXED community.

I have gotten tired of comments from people" who know nothing , trash talking" I have been a life long resident of this city , as far as i am concern, we have the best city in Bullitt County" go to Council meeting and express your concerns, so you can make yourself look like a fool. if I had something to say" I would go" (READ THE FACTS AND DO YOUR HOME WORK FIRST) before making comments.

Will they ever stand up and tell the truth. Again the June Mt W City Water and Sewer bill states your water bill will increase by 3.2% startng July 1st. They lie, YOUR WATER AND SEWER bill will INCREASE by 6.4% starting July 1st.

Reason, 3,2% is less than their 2015 annual salary increase. But in reality, 6.4% is greater. So while THEY are receiving a fat salary increase, city tax payers will receive a fatter tax increase.

This is the way bankers slide numbers past unsuspecting folks.
