Here is the Link:
I saw this in the paper today and I was wondering why it was not financed for a longer period of time? I understand at the time in the last administration when they negotiated this agreement but did the elected officials have the best interest of the residents at heart when they did this? Then this current one is just as bad as the last one. For the first two years they did not care about it until the end of the third year and now its election time!! Also I have seen a few things done with this money like a Tenth Street Pump station that smells so bad speeding should be allowed at this intersection, a new treatment plant in the east side of town to take care of the annexation area. What about this big interceptor project that JTL is involved in? When will we ever see our Sewer tax money at work there? The city forced out several of my neighbors for the rights to that property to put this line through and still 5 years later nothing to show for it? Whats up with JTL? Did they lose a T-Square?
Then how about all the nice new trucks I see the sewer department and other departments driving around the city in? How were these paid for? I have not seen a "Suck Truck" in my neighborhood in 3.5 years. Yet we flood the most because to quote Jorge Lanz from JTL, you are at the bottom of the bowl. Then there were residents who could barely afford the old rates living off fixed incomes, like a lot of our seniors forced with the decision, do I pay the sewer bill or do I buy food or pay for heat this month? These were not questions taken into consideration for anyone who is forced with these decisions. Now if you fall behind on your sewer bill they have the right to shut off your water. Only in Jeffersonville!!
Maybe it is time for an audit to be done on a lot of accounts there in the city. Out of all these firms involved in this process I would like to see how many are donating money to certain Political races that are getting ready to gear up. Then I wonder how many have made donations under the table to certain leaders of this City. Do we ever see and end to this madness!! I don't!!
