Dig more sewer hookups

  • Follow Letters

Richmond County spent a bunch of money to install sewers in south Richmond County. As of right now, I believe fewer that 60 percent of south Augusta residences have hooked into the system. That’s revenue lost, and against the law that requires a “mandatory hookup if within 200 feet of sewer line.”

So quit bellyaching about low revenues and go after this lot.

make it affordable

the 600 dollar or so tap fee could be incorporated into the property tax and paid out over a 10 year period increasing monthly revenues. I am sure someone can work out a bond issue to pay for the installations as the payback is pretty assured. Hope some commissioner takes note and pushes on this.

Make It Affordable

It isn't just the $600.00 tap fee...the total cost can be in excess of $2,000.00 with the lines to be run, septic tank fill in, and other fees. I would gladly 'tap in' if I could come up with the cash. These are all upfront fees. Is there assistance for those of us on fixed incomes?
