"The more you tell lies about me, the more we'll tell the truth about you."
Nov. 12, 2019 Board of Supervisors Meeting
Another interesting board meeting, I ask you to find the moment in this meeting video where Mr. Vinnie Biancone is asking the board to explain to him the expected rate increases from Pa. Water. HE voted to sell our plant and clearly has no understanding of the implications regarding the future increase as that future comes closer and closer to reality. The sale of this plant in my opinion is incredibly tragic. If we had competent supervisors and had not turned our township over to outsiders ( Bucks and Chester County residents) and if we had an oversight function from the public ( this site Now!) and had not dissolved the "sewer authority" we would have a plant that would have provided our community with the lowest sewer charges in eastern Pennsylvania, greed and stupidity will soon show us all how much of a mistake we as a community have made. You can expect significant increases soon and you will be paying on a monthly basis instead of quarterly. This alone increases Pa. Water's cash flow and reduces yours. Now, we must watch this board and the new board to preserve what will remain from our sewer plant proceeds. They plan to spend it fast, faster then they even comprehend. We have had at least the last 5 years run deficits against our general fund. They have projected spending more in 2020 than the amount of taxes they will take in.....where will the deficit come from? The proceeds of the sewer plant of course. Subsidizing lower taxes is not smart and it will create what I call a future Exeter tax time bomb. PLEASE SHOW UP AT THE NOV. 25TH SUPERVISORS MEETING AND TELL THEM YOU WANT THEM TO STOP MAKING ANY SPENDING DECISIONS REGARDING THE SEWER PROCEEDS AND THE THE $7 MILLION THAT THEY MOVED OUT OF THE SEWER FUND UNTIL THE NEW BOARD IS INSTALLED IN JANUARY. NO BONUS TO JOHN GRANGER (township manager) or ED GILLETTE (EEMA president) who I have heard he and his employee's will be hired by American Water.
This video is about BoS Nov. 12, 2019 Click "Show More" to see comments and index. I point your attention ( I left out comment) concerning the Civil Penalty we incurred, you will hear the during the solicitors report ( 1:30:33 ) near the end of the meeting. In my opinion, due to previous supervisors inaction to maintain the sewer plant we are fined by the DEP for over $70,000 in Civil penalties.
