Letter: Why sewer fees?

City of Concord, why are you charging me sewer fees because my washer leaked and I water my garden? I think your practice of charging for sewer by multiplying the water usage is antiquated.

If a resident waters their lawn or garden, fills their pool or has a flood, you are charging sewer fees for a service we are not using. Almost sounds illegal to me – at the very best crooked.

And while I am at it, you force us to buy these bags for trash, and their quality is horrible.

Don’t get me wrong: I am all for the program, but we need a bag that is capable of actually holding trash. Also, why is New Hampshire not making its own bags? Put some residents to work?

Answer, about sewer fees - to make money. Here in NH, it doesn't have to fair, just like the reliance on property taxes. Here's another one; motor vehicle registration fees. Why does it cost so much? What does it accomplish? Why is it needed for a little trailer you use to take trash to the dump? To make money.
