Yes, it's a low-interest loan. So What!!! It is for repair work that has needed to be done for years. Y'all complain about the water, yet when Ilion gets a loan to fix the problems, all you want to do is complain. Get over it!

Yo Joe, We shouldn't be upset over improving our infrastructure.
The payment on the loan interest is much lower than costs would be without it. Make some cuts to employee benefits to pay for it and the rate payer won't be affected.
Thank You
