Boycott of Clairton Municipal Authority Rate Hike

200 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We, the Citizens of Clairton, Pa intend to boycott the recent rate hike imposed by the Clairton Municipal Authority. We were told in 2012 that the increase would be to $35 for a flat fee and it wouldn't exceed $45 in 2014. Recently we were informed that fee would now be $50 per month. This is in direct conflict with their original letter.We have also been informed that Clairton is the only community that has incurred this expense. The reason is that the CMA is expanding to accomodate other communities waste water and they are putting the cost directly on the citizens of Clairton. We will not stand for this blatant disregard for the Citizens and increased hardships created so a Company can increase their profits.We are calling for an IMMEDIATE reduction in our cost. We are DEMANDING that the current rate of $25 flat rate and $8 per 1000 gallons remain in affect until further investigations can be conducted to verify the validity of this increase. We are also demanding that the money you pay the City every year from the sale of the sewage system be directly applied to the citizens of Clairton sewage bills.

    it amazes me that the property owners in Clairton pay more for sewagw than any other community served byCMA
    if the system is over loaded why do they continue to permit new tap ins for homes selling for $200,000 and up
    > make them pay for this and the cost of any improvements should be paid by all not the people in our city

    These rates are ridiculous. There is no way it should cost more money to get rid of dirty water than it does to get clean water. The reason for the rate hikes was to replace the city's old terra cotta sewage lines, but I've yet to see one street dug up to replace the lines. Someone is lining their pockets with our money! Here's to hoping that the state's attorney general can investigate. I smell corruption.
