Wait till all these people find out that they will be paying about $500.00+ more for flood insurance per year. I have been paying it for 28 years & live right across the street from Greenrun. I never knew they didn't have to have it or pay what I have been paying. Where do I apply for a refund???

I don,t need flood insurance nor do I need storm water/ surge protection as I live on top of the Pungo Ridge.

I would like a refund on the storm water charge and be exempt from further billing.

You need to be more considerate of the hard working taxpayers. Another $1.50 for late charges?
Stop feeding the homeless with the taxpayers money. They are a liability and a blight on our city. The money could go for a much better cause.
