RE: Re: water meters


I sympathize.  We have a sewer tax that's based on footage on the road, and
for us that's the long side of the property.  We are, however, on our own
septic (and the sewer line doesn't cross the conservation strip, so there's
no choice involved).  Gotta pay it anyway...

Auralie,
That's $5000!  Unless you were paying less 30 yrs ago. But still!
But I suppose if you demanded they supply you something for your taxes
paid, they'd hit you with a whopping price tag for hooking you up.
Still,
just not right.
