Unreasonable 300 percent

| Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The letter “New sewer fee not unreasonable” (Dec. 3), by Anthony Buyny, states that the new sewage recovery fee increase proposed by East Vandergrift is not unreasonable. I would ask Mr. Buyny to come and look at some of my credit card bills and utility bills. If someone told him he would be forced to pay these bills at 300 percent more than he's paying now, what would he do?

What would council do if it had to pay a 300 percent increase in any of its bills?

As for not staying for the whole meeting, it was just a rehash of everything they have said before. What, you don't think I wasn't told what went on?

The meeting on Aug. 19 told us nothing. It is the same old story over and over again with the council in this town.

It is time for changes in town council. We should kick out all these people and put in new members. Like the story of old, I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
