Water commission is at it again

Success - Article sent! close

Well, the Du Page Water Commission is at it again. They are raising our rates 30 percent next year. Who in this world gets a 30 percent increase in anything other than politicians' pay.

Now Commissioner James Zay wants us to believe that the commission is going to watch Chicago to make sure they don't spent our rate increase in a misappropriated way. This comes from the kings of misappropriated funds, the Water Commission of DuPage County. If this commission would have used the brain they were born with they would have set rate with the city of Chicago of no more than a 4 percent increase per 5-year period in the beginning so that the city could not raise the rates like they are doing now.

Now the commission is raising our rates 15 percent in the next four years, to pull themselves out of the mess they are in. This is the same commission that is going to watch over the city of Chicago? Give me a break.

Does anyone in the United States think that the politicians are going to wake up and think the people have had enough. The time has come, people. Speak up, tell the politicians they have to take a 30 percent pay cut and now will have to pay for half their insurance. Let's see how they like it.
