Water upgrades not needed


Even though Escanaba has not had any problems relating to lead in the water system, some bureaucratic agency “suggested” that the water system “should be” upgraded. So, the city administration decides to upgrade the system and make the city utility users to pay for the upgrades at a cost of approximately 45 percent increase. None of us voted for it. Isn’t that what sparked the Revolutionary War? Taxation without representation. Water under the bridge, so to speak.

Can anyone point out anywhere in the city where the upgrades are happening? You would think that if this was such a threat, they would have already started. Perhaps they hired the same company that finally finished the three-year bridge project over the Escanaba River. Who knows.
