Watching the rain come down and knowing that our system can only handle so much I find myself hoping it would stop soon. Knowing that with just enough rain to put the system over the top our basements could start flooding is no way for any of us to have to live. Is this how it’s going to be every time it rains? I would like to place blame on the Mayor, but this is not his doing. To be fair at least he’s come out and told all of us what is going on in the city. We can expect more flooding more law suites and yes for sure water rates to go up and up, and maybe even a special tax just for this. The council back in February or March voted to raise the water rates with the exception of Councilwoman Horvath who voted NO. We can all look to having it done again I’m sure, but to what end when will it become to expensive to wash our clothes, or take a shower let alone water the lawn and flowers.
