"Poplarville Mayor Billy Spiers said the new plant is a great addition and is expected to serve the city for many years to come. If the board of alderman had made the improvements, taxpayers would have had to foot the bill, but instead Hurricane Katrina grant funds paid for the work in both cities.
“So this was a blessing to us,” Spiers said.
There is a cost to the residents, slightly higher sewer rates. Spiers said many of his constituents are not happy about the extra monthly expense, but those rate changes were needed to cover the cost of running the new facilities. Spiers said he hopes the rates will remain stable for a long time."
Slightly higher sewer rates? I would like to know if Mayor Spiers thinks that 40% is slightly higher because that was the amount of the rate increase I have been paying.
Gee, I'll bet if he were an employer and his workers requested a 40% pay increase he would think it were excessive.
