don't be laming an increase on rising duel costs !!!
especially now - fuel has went down in cost substantially in the last few months.

as for the bonds - QUIT borrowing money ! you can't keep 'living on credit'-- how many times does it take to learn to live within your means.

There are people in LOCAL government who are complaining because they are only making $80,000 a year - and are getting raises to 'only'$125,000 a year !!!

My husband works 2-3 times the hours you do - 3-4 times as hard [labor] and brings home under $40,000 per year - BEFORE TAXES !!!

and you want to take MORE from us??? ENOUGH ALREADY !!!!!

Gee, what a surprise. A big fat fee increase coming right on the heels of a mandatory collection policy. Has any unfunded mandate ever failed to screw the people? I'm sure Eureka can look forward to more "well justified" fee increases in the near future.
