Letter To The Editor: More Utility Rate Increases

on September 16, 2017 - 10:40am

Remember that discussion a couple of months back about how sewer rates were being rubber-stamped each year for the past five years at 8 percent each year. The Department of Public Utilities wanted an 8 percent increase this year to show that they had revenues to get financing for the White Rock Water Treatment Facility (WRWTF or WWTF).

Remember that I was a strong advocate of tying the increases to the specific projects that they were using as rationale so that they could be removed when that obligation went away?

Letter To The Editor: Nuisance Ordinance - Hurrah For Jim Redman And The LADP!

I would like to publicly second Jim Redman's statement (link).

It is refreshing that someone has the intellectual capacity to see something for what it is, has the fortitude to publicly state it, and has a forum on which to do so (the Los Alamos Daily Post).
 
While I have not (yet) been either victim (or aggressor) in this context, I still regard it as a nasty and overly-expensive arrangement.
