Attached is a letter |
Mayor Welch sent to the Director of State Parks and Reservoirs on August 8, 2012. The letter states the Mayor will approve and direct the City to give Cliffy Falls State Park a credit of $2,500 per year to be applied to the Park's sewage bill during the current 4 year term of the Welch administration. The credit is stated to be reasonable because water for the Park's pool is not released into the City's sewer system.
The letter raises several questions:
Do all pool owners in the City receive a similar credit? (It is my understanding no other pool owners receive the credit)
Did the Mayor make the decision to issue the credit on his own or did the City Board of Works and/or the City Council approve the credit?
If the Mayor issued the credit on his own, did he have the authority to do so?
Why does Clifty Park get special treatment? (Other businesses with pools also bring visitors to our area, and they do not get the credit)
It is confirmed the with the City Water department that the Park has been receiving the credit. It interesting that the letter is not on official City letterhead. Warren A. Auxier
It is a fact that our sewer and water rates have increased and will continue to rise. Do you think everybody should pay their fair share including Clifty Park along with all our homes and businesses? I sure could use a break !!
