To the Editor:
This is an open letter to The City of Enterprise, our Elected Mayor and City Council:
Has anyone actually gone out to the community and talked to them regarding this proposed new water system? And I am not talking about putting a sign in the yard! The city doesnt listen to those that TRY to ask questions. They are sent away with no explanation of these high water/sewer bills other than it is the way it is.
This community cannot continue paying increased utilities with NO input! A sewer plant that was over-built for this community was in place before anyone knew what was going on, now we have a new water system being installed with little input.
Are you really thinking what the increase of water bills will do to a community that is already stretched? Anderson-Perry tells us that median wage per household is $35,000. Is your neighbor up the street making $35,000 or are they on a set income per month and an additional $25 is devastating. Most of the people I talked with in the fall were already hurting with increased bills and at that point were NOT watering their postage stamp yards makes you want to move to a city with high utility bills and brown yards, huh?
Enterprise businesses are hitting their heads against the wall to survive. We need your help! As elected officials talk to the people!! And listen please.
