Forcing hookup long after the inital notification at current costs is unfair

If South Haven must charge homeowners for available water and sewer hookups, the cost to them should be the fees required when the service became available in their area.

Why is this important?

South Haven Township ( and other municipalities) notified residents that when water and sewer service was made available, hooking up would be mandatory. Since the regulation was not enforced for many years, and home building has stopped, the townships find that revenue to pay for the bonds involved isn't there. Now, the townships want all affected owners to pay current enormous fees to help get them out of the mess they created.


Reasons for signing

  • We have both water and sewer but what I am hearing sounds like a fairly out- rageous amount....$19000...for those who are going to have to hook up.
  • This stinks. How well money be rasied to cover bonds?
  • When water and sewer were brought into the twp., we were told for those living 200ft. off the road would NOT have to hook up, I hope this still applies!! People have lost jobs, retired people living on limited incomes, and residents simply don't want this shoved down their throats in this bad economy.
