What you all MAY be missing is that the rates for sewer and water were skewed very favorably to the condos and commercial properties. In some cases, the condos receive a rate as much as five times less than the homeowner when you compare equal amounts of water usage. (I can provide the numbers for the naysayers.) If the rates were truly equitable, do you think that there would be as much animosity?
I personally opposed the STRP because it was totally unnecessary. I still believe that entire project was and is only a cover and cash generator for the insane purchae of the utility with totally inadequate due diligence. We didn't even examine the pipes until year's after and those videos have STILL not been released to my knowledge. We will be replacing the entire system over time (not long) as more leaks and spills develop as they have like clockwork. Unfortunately for the home owners, they will pay the lion's share of the cost. That was always the plan.
