As a follow-up to my May 22, 2012 article in The Chattanoogan regarding “Sewer Fees Is Proof City Council Can’t Balance The Budget” – I have received my second water bill wherein it again reflects the 9.7 percent sewer fee increase (bill has again doubled).
I received a response letter to my May 22 article from Councilwoman Deborah Scott wherein she stated that the sewer fee had not yet been approved. If that is true, then what is wrong here?
Tennessee American Water (“TAM”) can’t explain it.
And, TAM wants an increase of 20 plus percent? Something is very wrong with this entire situation, and we cannot stand by and do nothing.
