My water bill came today a week late, but now it is fancy. Just WTF is CIF Paving and CIF Planning Comm???? Some more freaking BS from Boss Foxx and Sheriff Julie???? My bill went up $8. The morons on City Council and Boss Foxx want more and more and more and take and take and take. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!! Everyone else has to tighten their belts INCLUDING the state of WV. I have not had a pay raise from the state in 6 years. I can barely afford this increase, but I know several in town on fixed incomes that cannot.

Ah don"t worry about it we all have to give up a couple of gallons of milk a month so the mayor and all of the police officers can drive there cars home and anywhere they damn well please. But no one says anything about that. I bet when they get there new cruisers ole Dave will get a new one out of the old fleet. I think he needs to go to work like everyone else in the world has to. Lazy Ass any way.

I heard tonight from someone that Boss Foxx will maintain his house here in town and live up north in order to stay Mayor. If true, that smells to high Hell.

You are NEVER Satisfied.....This is the new, error proof billing....it is still estimated and has been since January. You got this 5 days late, but if any of you would buy the weekly paper..(so WHAT if it is 71c, it's ONLY once a week!)...you would have seen the announcement about the NEW BILL, and that you still have 20 days in which to pay it. If you used more than your usual monthly amt of water during those 6 months they were estimated,(at your regular rate) when they start reading them again...all those months of a practically free water usage, will catch up with you. I KNOW there were months I should have been billed more...and was surprised that my usage didn't show up...but I read the small print on each bill that said "ESTIMATED"....so I understood! I didn't get all bent out of shape and twisted, crying on Topix. I am by no means the brightest bulb in the lamp, but I can figure things out, why can't you? Dan, you are ALWAYS the one to be the first to stir the proverbial POT....you never think before you complain. There are people on here who might not be as smart as you, and take every gripe you make to heart. Did you ever think you haven't gotten a raise in 6 yrs, in your 'State Job' in the Friendly Water Dept is BECAUSE you are a trouble maker? As far as your Nemesis, FOXXX....he will be here to serve out his Term. He is not selling his building on Wells St., his wife has been SENT to be the Pastor at 2 Churches up the River. She will have a place to stay up there, and during the week she can come back here...to her Gym or her HOUSE. When Rumor had it LAST WEEK, that he was selling his FATHER'S HOUSE on McCoy Hgts....people on these sites were AGHAST! "How COULD he?" Now the Rumor you are starting on here (BTW, it IS off-topic, you know) shows you are upset that he is NOT selling. You are all either idiots or ignorant.

I don't know how Fox and the council get away with charging us a Community Improvement Fee (CIF) Paving when we all pay a Street Fee. Also, what IS CIF Planning Comm? Are we paying extra for the Planning Committee?! If so, this is completely wrong!

I just completed a 2000 word 'Thesis' on the Suggestion of, the acceptance by all, the need for, the use of, the results of THE COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT FUND.(CIF) A small amount....has NOTHING to do with the STREET FEE. It disappeared into Cyberspace....and while I was furious, I realized, WTH, it doesn't matter. You will STILL gripe and complain and it is all in naught anyway, like "Pushing a load of Horse Manure up a hill with a SPOON".

CIF Paving has everything to do with the Street Fee! It is not right or legal to charge us 2 fees for the same thing!

Oldie is right on with understanding the whys and wherefores of the actual water usage bill and the estimated---Duh Dangerous Dan--If you found $100, you would probably complain about the denomination of the bills--Get a life Dude! To your own self be true because YOU can't get away from you. You don't appreciate what you have in this little piece of Heaven, Sistersville,WV. You can take a walk without carrying a piece or a club. The City Workers do all they can with the resources they have to make you happy with your surroundings that even you can appreciate--It must be miserable to see nothing good about anything!!!

I know! Right?! I only made it half way through that stupid post and decided if I wanted to read that shit, I'd have paid 71c for the paper. But I didn't, I saved my money so I could throw it in a fountain. That was money well spent.

If the Mayor is not selling the house on McCoy Heights then why is a For Sale sign in the yard and why is it listed on Citywide Realty website?

The water bills have been incredibly high as of late. I understand that they may be estimates; however, when will we be getting credits? When will they begin to read the meters? If this is the case, most residents shouldn't have to pay another bill for years. There is no way we are using up 2 to 3 hundred worth of water. I, for one, can afford any more increases. I would like to know when this issue will be resolved. It will get to the that residents will have to leave the city because they can't afford the water. I am not "griping" just stating the fact that our water bills are higher then any surrounding area city.

I would love to know what CIF Planning Comm stands for. Planning Committee? If this is so, i don't care if it IS only $1, it is legally and morally wrong to charge us citizens on our water bill for a committee that is volunteer and has to get the approval of the Council on things anyway! Stop taking our hard earned money for idiotic reasons, Fox.

Dangerousdan, you have got to be the most ignorant person on the face of this earth. You run your mouth about everything yet have NO facts to support your accusations.. You haven't had a raise in six years because you don't deserve one! How many times have you been disciplined at work for improper Internet use? You work for the state and are wasting tax payer money like that? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? Were you bullied as a child? That is the only explanation I have for your stupidity. I think the federal government should monitor Internet use and refuse to allow jack____ like you to have Internet access. You have been paying Ciff paving and Ciff community improv all along. It is just broken down for you to simplify it. Apparently you weren't smart enough to figure it out. It's okay. We will all continue to hold your hand through life. Also, can you please clarify for all of us just how long the bridge at the park has been out? I have heard two years , three years, four years. Give me a damn break! The bridge was taken out after the last earthquake we had. I don't know the date off the to of my head but it definitely hasn't been over two years. I'm begging you Dan, please get some medication to help with your vivid imagination. It's to bad the state took Colin Anderson out of saint Mary's because we could have often you some help there.

The bridge hasn't been fixed for 3 yrs. Get it right. Second, we already pay a Street fee, so it is ridiculous to pay a paving fee. Third, Planning Committee is volunteer, not paid. So why are we having to pay for it on the bill? Get your facts right.

He who has no sin cast the first stone. Im new around here and after reading these awful mean posts about a water bill and you guys wanna stone this dan fellow? God Forbid if he ever actually broke the law. Would he be hung in the town square. I ask around, this guy is in the Lions club. I have a good friend in this club. They donate more time than catholic nuns. Please one person show this man some mercy. God will Bless You. Maybe the guy is new in town. If he is a lotime resident my heart goes out to him
