Water vs. schools, it’s not that simple

Dear Editor:
Something struck me as suspicious in Jack O’Connell’s comments on Friday, February 7. Did the water company ask him to scare us from a takeover using our children as pawns?

The way I see it, his suggestion would be a double dip into our pockets with continued increases in water costs and a bond for schools. With all the riders I hear about in federal law, it would be interesting to know if we could create a bond for both water and schools? This could address long term water rate issues and tap into state matching funds for schools.
