This short video (12 minutes) discusses the misleading and completely false assertion that the $1.7 million dollars subsidizing the General Fund is from the collection of Aged accounts receivables from past owed sewer bills. I will show you how they have mislead all of us and the last slide I will show you the "FUZZY" accounting/reporting which makes no sense at all.This last slide is planned to be discussed at the BoS May 10 meeting. It is an eye opening to anyone who watches with an open mind.
