i AM SO SICK OF THESE INCREASES. I FIND IT STRANGE THAT THERE WERE had no ratepayers in attendance, HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN. OH WAIT IF YOU DON'T TELL THEM, THEY WON'T COME!! NOTHING BUT A SCAM JOB JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE. I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY GET THEIR NUMBERS FROM BUT MY WATER BILL IS OVER 1K.

Isn't time the town departments make cuts to decrease their operating budgets -- the average taxpayer who is lucky enough to still have a job has had gone without a pay increase as the private sector has cut expenses to continue to survive in this depressed economic environment.
If taxes can not increase over 2.5 percent, wouldn't it be logical that town departments should not pass such a huge burden onto the taxpayers? It is time to streamline operations, freeze pay and have the employees contribute more for their insurance. In the past town employees were never better off than those working in the private sector but how that has changed.
As far as the water goes, the stench when you turn your tap on is often overpowering - and to think, there was time when Pepperell water was the finest you could find. Something is really wrong with the current local government and its ability to ignore the people of the town and continue to let the various department budgets continue to increase -- this is outrageous.

Pepperll was far better off with the 'townies'
or 'good ole boys' running the show that a lot
of you folks rail against in here. These folks
had a stake in the town and knew how to stretch
a buck. Somebodys got to pay for the water dept.
