by no means am I saying Brian Berger is doing a great job as commissioner..by NO MEANS, but he does have a point in lowering rates so that people can afford to pay their water bills. You would think in this news story that CFPUA would come out and match the amount that the commissioners raised for those without water. The high execs make 10,000 a month which tells you their priority to their customers. The figure was over $150,000 dollars needed to pay off bills for people in NH County without water. 10,000 is not even a dent in that figure. I applaud the commission in coming up with something which is more than what CFPUA has done. People water bills are like car payments now. Pay your water or buy food for your family? 480 families are without water in Wilmington. As someone said, this is not Haiti, we as a community shouldnt have people going without water. If there are kids or elderly in the home, utilities should not be cut off!
