Letter to the editor 4, September 25, 2015
The Town of Hudson is taking extreme measures to solve its financial problems when it taxes many residents for a service they do not receive.
It is reasonable that we all pay taxes to offset the costs’ construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities available to all residents, such as roads, aqueducts, parks, public buildings, schools, and so forth.
However, only a few residents are served by the new municipal sewer system, yet all of us are being taxed to subsidize this cost. Those of us not served by the municipal sewer system have no choice but to pay for all of the costs of construction and maintenance of private septic sewage disposal systems. Would it not be fair then, that the municipality should subsidize the cost of sewage disposal not only for those on the municipal system, but also for those not served by the municipal system?
It is hoped that by writing this letter to Your Local Journal that the Town of Hudson will finally respond to my letters of December 4, 2014, February 13, 2015, and March 20, 2015.
