I really don't think the majority of the people who rip on the mayor and the board members could walk a mile in their shoes. It's a thankless job. Someone has to step to the plate and take these positions. No, you don't have to agree with everything they say, but at least show some mutual respect.

i really hate what this town has become. this is my hometown and i looked forward to raising my family here. now i am looking forward to the day i can move out of this high school drama town. things were much better when tim was the mayor. nepo is turning into a boot camp and if you're not on the board or stuck up one of the members' butt, then you are a nobody. you are on their list of what to bitch. maybe the members should get really jobs insteads of driving around town and snooping at the citizens'. remember members if there are 3 of you talking about town issues then its considered a board meeting. lets keep it at the town meetings,where everything and everyone can here. i don't recall the gas station the place for town meetings. if you want to keep this town thriving then maybe the members need to keep the REALLY neponset citizens happy.

You must be a friend of Tim's. Your last sentence say's it all. If you kiss my butt. Then I will stay and be happy. Well my friend :). Pack your bags and move. Every town is the same. We need to clean up. And not push our bad habits on those that live next to us. It's still america. If you don't like the town move. But by far the last thing we need. Is the old board back. And no I'm not on the board. And I don't have any friends, there. Not sure I have any friends in town at all. But I have lived here for more than 60 yrs. Can you say that. And this town was ready for a change. May not be the best. But it's better. You should go ask Tim, who screwed you on the sewer and water rates. He should have applied for the gov. grant, a few yrs back. Like Sheffield, did. When the gov was handing out the money to do it! Our government is like a broken gun. It don't work and you can't fire it.

You really are stupid, the town did get grant money for 75% of the cost. If you had gone to an informational meeting 8 years ago, you would know that. Quit talking out of your ass.

Did you see the paper work get filled out!!!!!!!!!! Do you know for a fact we got 75%!!!! If we did, then why are the water bills and the sewer rates so high. 25% of the cost sure isn't that much!!!!!!!!Look in the mirror, when you say stupid. If you buy that bull shit. Also if we got the grant money. Why did it take several years to get the job done. Sheffield, ask for the money and built theirs with in 1 year. If any one is talking out their ass----it's more than likely you. So if you have proof, of this grant. Tell me why our rates are so high. And going higher yet.

Did you notice, that some people refure to people according to their income, as low class, middle class, and high class? What the hell is that all about? I know people, who don't have two nickles to rub together, and are high class through and through.

I of all people, am on a fixed income.(retired). I hated the cost too! But the state is the one that said every town in Ill. would have sewer and no more tanks. Not the city. Not Tim's fault or anyones fault. We just had to do what the state said. The problem is, don't wait till you have no choice. And settle for a 3rd rate job. Thats what the council did. Waited to long. And who contracted with this company to do the job? This council or the old one? Why didn't someone check this firm out? I am sorry I didn't go to the meetings! I wished I had.
As far as no one reading the meters. That is why I said our bills will be going higher. A flat rate ( not happy about that it's just me and husband).
As for the water coming into house check and see. If it's coming from the street. Check with a lawyer People in Quad cities did and the town had to fix it. If it's on your property then you need to check with who put you line in. I had a few problems and the guy who did mine fixed it.
I am not any better or any worse, than anyone else who posts.
I just try to be fair about things.
Good luck with your problem.

I'm still waiting for the proof.
