Chairman Magel’s letter to the editor again tries to divide the Citizens of Marco Island.
I had thought that after the council voted we would be able to go on with our lives. But no, Chairman Magel has decided to continue his campaign of “misinformation.”
He quotes a Marco Island Property Owners newsletter of Feb. 26 stating a “186 percent increase in water and sewer rates.” The notation was a question not a statement.
Chairman Magel, I think you should check your facts. At a council meeting it was stated in the records that water and sewage could be as high as 186 percent for low volume users.
Councilor Trotter also addressed this at a council meeting. Please check the public records. Chairman Magel is addressing this issue after MIPO and MITA fought to lower the rates.
Yes the current rates are lower than those originally proposed by the consultant only because of efforts of these organizations.
