Now that the city has decided to move the Marshals Museum further down the road, what happens now? The Board of Directors approved forcing 3 water and sewer rate hikes during a 4 year period to only have the Board of Directors approve the city taking $2.1 million from that same water and sewer fund to provide utilities to 60 acres of privately owned riverfront property, what is next? Will the Board of Directors now approve more money taken from the same water and sewer fund to provide more infrastructure expenses for this originally privately funded project? Surely, there will be more surplus money building up in the water and sewer fund to use for such projects. The Board of Directors will probably just hide such spending in the “consent agenda”. Those young couples trying to raise their young families and pay higher water, sewer and trash bills will never know. Do you think these young people will continue to move north or other places in an effort to get away from high essential basic services, low median household incomes in an effort to keep more of their disposable incomes?
