How about a fair water bill?

Fair is only fair on a level playing field!, or am I wrong about this?
Did you know that many of the meters in this town do not work, at all!
Did you know that those residents only pay the minimum?
If your meter works you are paying their water bill for them.
Now if that isn't bad enough, did you know that when water meters get old, they run faster, not slower. What does that mean? Well I would say you are paying for water you and your families didn't use.
Damit, That don't seem fair to me.
What do you think?

You must know old folks always have one more thing to add.Your sewer bill goes up and down acording to the amount of water you use.

Sooooo! you get billed again for water you didn't get!

I know call Carl Rorhig, or Kenny Snider,and set up a time you can get your Kiss, to go along with the screwing they are giving you if your sixty,or seventy year old meter is working.

This is just getting worse by the month. NO I don't live there anymore, the water mess had a lot to do with that. Now I actually make my monthly payments. This issue has been going on for years. I really am worried about the people who have cancer, due to the high radium levels in the water. As for sympathy from the city council that's a laugh. I pray for your health all of you.

Joe Swearingen was a good man,neighbor,and family man.I'm sure he will be greatly missed.
The sad thing is that he isn't the only resident that will be or has been lost to cancer. Neponset has a bad past on illness, and who's next?

More and more will be lost, because of that God Damned US Ecology, and the EPA. They made the profit,and we pay the bill, either with our money, or our blood, what do you think? yours next?

Our town council don't give a damn,they are scared out of their whits,for what? what could the EPA Do? They have already Killed some of us. Whats next?

Well Old Timmer looks like Neponset lost another one to cancer. Wayne Holton passed , he will be missed I'm sure. Was it due to the contaminated water, maybe, haven't enough been buried without anyone investigating the cause. I'll pray for you "Old Timmer" at least no one can bill me for that.
well

Maybe you should take a walk up town yourself. There are people working on the buildings on the southside of the street. They are truely fixing them up. You should stop by and look at them, I did.
They are working on them slowly but none the less they are fixing them up. North side is a total loss, except bank and post office and corner building. So you might want to rethink the whole up town is total loss.
