About a mile down the road from us they built 2/3 huge subdivisions a few years ago. Last year, (because the city wanted all the tax revenue) that area & our property was absorbed into the city limits. Since then we have received city taxes, water & sewage bill, trash bill….and all the road litter & trash that goes with “progress”.
This is what we have actually gained. A fire hydrant. It would be nice but it’s not connected to any thing.
We don’t get city water/sewage for another 6-9 months. And that’s after we pay $1,500 to connect to the new city water pipes…after we dig & lay over 600 ft of our connection pipes (after we disconnect from our perfectly good ones) to the road. Here is the CRAZY thing, when those connected to city water and sewage loose power, water and sewage shuts down. In the 20 yrs we have lived here we’ve never lost water or sewage abilities with our septic system or rural water connection.
We’ve lost all the county rural laws and gain all the city restrictions
So, Where’s the benefit! Where’s the PROGRESS!!!
Starting on the legs, hope to complete them tonight!
Tell me something good about living in the city limits!
