MSD Seeks to Jack Up Rates Again

According to an article today's Courier-Journal, the Metropolitan Sewer District board has unanimously approved a proposal to raise rates by 6.5%. The paper, as is its usual custom, compares sewer rates with other cities in an effort to "sell" the idea that our rates are low.

  1. I don't understand why Mayor Happy Pants continues to allow MSD to operate in this fashion. MSD will never have a real reason to run an efficient operation and remain accountable if they can continue to seek rate increases. My question: Why are these rates not a set percentage - forcing MSD to manage its operations more closely. These nickel and dime increases are a joke.
