My wife went to the township meeting and wanted to guess how they could mandate the sewer system, and make us pay for something all of us hadn’t voted on
Two years ago, all of us were told they were putting sewer lines on our street; We thought it was a good idea to have sewer lines instead of messy sewer tanks in the backyards, and the entire neighborhood agreedâ€¦ Two months later, all of us acquired notices all of us had several weeks to have the section dug up where the sewer lines were going to be stadiumd! I must have read the notice 4 times before I concluded they were telling all of us had to pay for the excavation of the section where the mandatory sewer lines were going in. It cost us $730 to connect to the sewer lines, and all of us then had to pay almost $100 a month to the sewer authority, but by the time all of us were done getting the sewer lines in stadium and connecting to the sewer pumping station, all of us had spent nearly $4000 and hadn’t acquired our first biweekly bill. My wife went to the township meeting and wanted to guess how they could mandate the sewer system, and make us pay for something all of us hadn’t voted on. They said they had that authority, although I wasn’t as glad as our wife, and she was furious. Many of our friends and neighbors were also at the meeting, and some of them had paid nearly $10,000 to hook into the mandated sewer line because of the amount of street front property they had, however even with our protesting, it made no difference. When they doubled the cost of our sewer bill a year later, I was a single of the first to put a ‘for sale’ sign in our front yard, although I wasn’t the last.
