Citizens Budget Committee Member Tells US why Water Rates are So High!
To All COLA LO Members,
This week budget committee member Gerry Good published an article in the LO Review. IN the article he provides precise reasons for why water rates continue to escalate in Lake Oswego. Its a good read for all citizens that are concerned about their monthly water bills.
According to Mr. Good it seems that rates will only continue to increase until elected officials begin to address the situation. His article can be found at: Skyrocketing Water Bills
In an ironic twist this week our council voted 5-1 to review getting into the Internet business in a public private partnership. Many wonder how much that will cost residents in the future. IT seems that the "tax and spend" mentality of the old days has returned to LO.
Fortunately the 2016 elections are just around the corner. Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
