Crime, Noise, & Taxes

Correction
In the article below, about the BOT titled Crime, Noise, & Taxes, I wrote “Greenberg wants more public input, and he suggested the increase be three quarters of one percent (0.75%).” Trustee Greenberg stated that, “there has been discussion of raising the rate three quarters percent and that I would like more discussion from the Board and hear more public input.” I am sorry for misquoting Trustee Greenberg, and for any confusion and it caused the public.

When a call was made to the number, a sweet-voice young thing explains that Miss Gardner is currently out, but that they contacted you because of “reports” about the water quality in your particular area; discoloration, funny taste or smell, etc. And they would be pleased to come to your home and do a free “instantaneous” test to determine what needs to be done to rectify the situation.
