Water rates

I read, with much interest, the article in your newspaper whereby Gyula Kiss has described how he believes water rates should be calculated.

I recently read, with much interest, the article in your newspaper whereby Gyula Kiss has described how he believes water rates should be calculated.

I would like at this time to express my strong positive feelings toward his ideas and hereby write to emphasize my support for his ideas.

I am a fairly new resident in Vernon and find that the water rates in my area tend to be quite exorbitant, to say the least.

Further to the prime objective of my note to you, I would also like to express my extreme satisfaction over the change in our city’s leadership.

A mayor who cannot appreciate the intricacies of waterworks cannot lead a community of this size as water is vital to our continued existence.

Speaking as an engineer myself, to design a water purification system that is obsolete within nanoseconds of it being designed and built is simply astounding.

Furthermore, it is incomprehensible why we have to supply farms with treated water.

However, I do not profess to be informed on that subject as of yet.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I trust my comments regarding water rates have supported Mr. Kiss’s thoughts.
