If you are connected to the Oneida County Sewer District system, your bill is going to go up 13 percent in 2013. . . .
The Oneida County Board of Legislators approved the new rates Wednesday at its regular meeting. . .
The legislation passed the full Board unanimously.Why do I single out Utica legislators?
The change is linked to the 2007 state Department of Conservation consent order that threatened to block development along the Sauquoit Creek line if certain repairs were not made.The Consent Order was the end result of all the "growth" in New Hartford. So now UTICA residents are forced to pay to improve County facilities to foster more surburban "growth." But where is the County allowing its facilities to be used to help Utica solve its storm water problem?
When will Mr. Trevisani, Mr. Paparella, Mr. Welsh, Ms. Speciale, Ms. Convertino, Mr. Caruso, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Furgol start representing Utica's interests?
They might as well be from Camden!
