Hike is 'outrageous'


I encourage all residents and property owners in the Village of Buckeye Lake and the surrounding areas to attend the upcoming public meeting concerning sewer rate increases. The meeting will be held at Lakewood High School on January 31, at 7:00 p.m. The recent fee increases, as announced in a Commissioners' letter dated January 12, 2007, appear to be unfair and unaffordable especially for those on fixed incomes and for the lower income residents of the Village and surrounding communities.

I do not oppose an increase in fees, but a 68.9% increase is outrageous. Hopefully, a large turnout on January 31 will encourage our Commissioners to revisit, rethink and reconsider their actions.
