Mayor Wants To Purchase Aquaria Plant
"The Brockton Water Commission is holding its annual hearing meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the Arnone Elementary School at 135 Belmont St.The meeting is in preparation for fiscal year 2018.
"Jordan said the Brockton Water Commission plans to discuss potential rate increases, which may be used to fund infrastructure maintenance and replacement efforts. A commission vote on the rates may take place at the meeting, said.
WTF- why, why, do we need to replace the meters so soon? WTF
"Another need, Jordan said, is to look at future water meter replacement work.We don’t want to do like we did it last time, the whole city at once,” Jordan said. “We’d like to spread it out a little over the years.”
We have 33 potential West Bridgewater residents on our side of town who will be happy to purchase this water if Meadow Woods on West Chestnut is built. Why not? They would be locked into septic systems if Brockton refused this insanity when the developers first applied for it.
I do not know enough about this topic yet. If cities and towns are already supplying their residents with water, what is the advantage of us buying Aquaria? Maybe we could bottle and sell - folks pay big bucks for this in grocery stores. Shoe City bottling? Guess I need to do my research. What I really do not understand is that they are researching rate increases for us to buy Brockton water ... when Brockton would own its own water? OK - that makes perfect sense.

Update from the Water Commission on the Water Rate Increase (per CAL Farwell):
SUMMARY - Water Rate Hearing of April 19th:
The Brockton Water Commission held a public hearing last evening at the Arnone School. Approximately ten (10) residents participated and I was joined by my fellow Councilors Jack Lally and Anne Beauregard, Christopher Cooney, President and CEO of the Metro South Chamber of Commerce, represented the business community.
NO decisions were made.
The commission expects to forward to the City Council by the middle of May, recommendations for any water rate changes. At that point it is the City Council's responsibility to research and determine if any actions are required. I will keep you informed.
My soc. sec. ck. is eaten up by nothing but taxes.
Can't possibly live on what they leave me, which
Because of poor management they are driving
more and more people out. It seems to be their goal.
If we all sang the same note in the choir, <br />We'd never have harmony <br />
This summer we will be under drought conditions again. We typically draw about 10 million gallons daily from Silver lake. We will be down to 4.5 million daily. No filling pools, washing your cars or watering your lawns. There will be more water boiling alerts this year due to the stresses on Silver Lake. Good thing we have the Aquaria we can buy water from.
