Boycott of Clairton Municipal Authority Rate Hike
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.
