Here’s the future for Chico if we allow this sewer tax to pass – because they were allowed to pass an ordinance, city of Lancaster Pa simply raises fees whenever they have a budget shortfall

3 Jan

I love the spin the Lancaster media put on this tax hike – “first tax hike in 4 years” . Well, how would you like to have a tax hike EVERY four years? That’s what you can expect from a city that passes a sales tax with a simple measure and then sends out a sewer rate increase notice over the winter holiday season when they’re all out of the office.

If you are a Cal Water customer living in Chico and you have not received a sewer rate increase notice, please contact me here, or contact your city clerk at dani.rogers@chicoca.gov

The hearing is set for January 17. I am interested in meeting any interested parties at the clerk’s office to ask our questions of her personally. Let me know here if you are interested in joining me.

    That would be Landcashter Pennsylvania.

      Thanks Fred – yeah, it’s the Pa Lancaster. But, the rate change Chico is considering is going to have the same effect. We will no longer be able to have any protest or comment on future rate hikes, this ordinance locks in the rate hikes forever.

    This annexed home belongs in the Cal water (yes), sewer (no), received notice (yes) group.

      Thanks Becca, I’m glad I asked. I finally realized, they just noticed all Cal Water customers. I hope you will file your protest, this is bullshit.
